Europe’s largest ethanol plant in the future requires different water qualities for several processes. A state-of-the-art turn-key water treatment system from ProMinent with reverse osmosis plants and water softener fulfils this challenge.
Turning corn into ethanol
In Dunaföldvár, south of the Hungarian capital Budapest, the company Pannonia Ethanol Zrt. currently utilizes roughly 650,000 tons of corn for the annual production of up to 280 million litres of ethanol. After the expansion phase in 2015, it will become Europe’s largest ethanol plant with an output of up to 450 million litres of ethanol.
