from food crops

Current Supply of Bio-Ethanol to Irish Market

Irelands first Biorefinery will be capable of producing and with "Double counting" exceed Irelands current EU mandated requirments for Biothanol blended trasnportation fuel. Current legislation states that 5% of all petrol must be Bioethanol. This 5% is currently met with imports of 60 Million Litres per year from USA and Brazil, often via Roterdam. The Bioethanol is made from Corn and Sugar Cane, a food crop with high embdded co2

With  Proesa™ technology (insert name here) will be producing 2nd Generation Bioethanol from waste cereal straw sourced eitirely from a within a 120Km radius of the Biorefinery in Co.Offaly.

Proesa™ belongs to the so-called “second-generation” technologies which allow the use of the sugars present in lignocellulosic biomass (Cereal Straw) to obtain fuel and other chemicals with lower greenhouse gas emissions and at competitive costs compared to fossil fuels (oil, natural gas).
