The first straw-based bioethanol plant in the world

DONG.jpgInbicon A/S, a subsidiary of Danish power producer DONG Energy, has constructed a demonstration plant in Kalundborg, Denmark, to produce second generation bioethanol. This plant is the first of its kind in the world, and it is capable of extracting ethanol from straw or other biologic by-products. This means that they will not use potential food resources, and in addition to ethanol the plant will also produce animal feed.

As part of this demonstration plant Reecon delivered a sophisticated air purification system to reduce the concentration of organic hydrocarbons and odour substances. The plant processes the humid and solvent loaded air from the production process to ensure no negative impact on the ambient environment.

Reecon built this plant under a turnkey contract.
