New Life Infused into Proposed Danish Cellulosic Ethanol Plant

Submitted by on April 11, 2017 – 6:48 pmNo Comment

(Ethanol Producer Magazine)  Prospects for a cellulosic ethanol plant to be built as part of the Maabjerg Energy Center in Denmark have achieved a breakthrough, according Jorgen Udby, chairman. London-based investment firm Pioneer Point Partners has confirmed in a letter of intent they are ready to investment up to 160 million euro in the plant. “However, they have made it a precondition that the political framework and long-term government support is settled first,” the company news release said.

Announced several years ago, the project to build a cellulosic ethanol plant alongside a biogas facility and biomass-fired cogeneration plant involved a consortium of local utility companies, enzyme-firm Novozymes and DONG Energy. Cellulosic ethanol developer Inbicon is a subsidiary of DONG Energy.

Before making the decision to invest, the regulatory framework for the revitalized project must be settled. Maabjerg Energy Center has resumed negotiations with the Danish Government.

MEC plans to increase biogas production and rebuild the biomass-fuel cogeneration plant. Current plants call for 80 MMly ethanol, 50 million cubic meters of biogas, and electricity and district heat production capable of serving 25,000 households. MEC will process 300,000 tons of straw, 800,000 tons of biomass for biogas and 100,000 tons of waste. The project will create 1,250 jobs during the two-year construction phase and is expected to provide 1,000 permanent jobs once operational.  READ MORE and MORE (Biofuels International)
