Wednesday, September 8, 2021
BRUSSELS, 8 September 2021 – European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) members produced 5.57 billion litres of ethanol and 6.16 million tonnes of co-products in 2020, according to audited data released today by the industry group. The figures showed a significant increase in production of ethanol for industrial use, including for hand sanitisers and disinfectants. The new statistics confirm the importance of European renewable ethanol biorefineries to achieving EU Green Deal objectives by reducing transport emissions and ensuring sustainable domestic production of animal feed and other beneficial co-products, including captured CO2. More than 98% of the feedstock used to produce renewable ethanol by ePURE members – including cereals, sugars, wastes and residues – was grown or sourced in Europe.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
