Ensus Bioethanol Plant

The plant was constructed in the Wilton International industrial park in Teesside, UK. The plant produces 400 million litres of bioethanol and 350 kiloton of high-protein animal feed or dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS). The bioethanol produced is used along with gasoline. The plant is expected to generate 70% of carbon savings compared to fossil fuel use; this translates into removing 300,000 cars from the road. In addition, the plant produces 25MW of surplus electrical power for exportation as a result of the high level of energy integration carried out at the plant.
