Abengoa Bioenergy Netherlands
Located in busy Europort near Rotterdam, Netherlands, Abengoa Bioenergy Netherlands (ABN) began start-up and production in 2010. The location of the facility at an international port allows for ease of access to the world grain market. The plant, designed to produce 480 million liters per year of industrial (fuel) grade ethanol, is the largest multi-feedstock (wheat and corn) fuel grade ethanol plant in the world. ABN also produces two valuable coproducts: a high protein animal feed (DDGS), and captured CO2 from fermentation (CO2 system is currently under construction). Cogeneration is integrated with the plant's steam boiler to produce the electricity and steam required for operations, making the plant and its products more sustainable. The ethanol plant is certified by the ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification).
KATZEN provided to ABN our detailed process design package as well as construction liaison, operator training, and start-up and operations support services.
