  • Renewable ethanol for fuel applications
    Renewable ethanol is produced by fermentation from carbohydrate-containing biomass such as sugar and starch. It has an alcohol content of at least 99 percent by volume, making it de facto water-free. It is used as fuel or mixed with normal petrol (E10). In the Südzucker Group, CropEnergies and AGRANA produce renewable ethanol.
  • Neutral alcohol
    CropEnergies operates plants for the production of neutral alcohol in Germany and France with a production capacity of up to 150 million litres per year. The neutral alcohol is used in the beverage, food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries as well as in industrial applications. 
  • Liquefied / biogenic CO2
    Fermentation processes, for example in ethanol production at CropEnergies or AGRANA, produce biogenic CO2 that can be captured, purified and put to further use. The purity of the carbon dioxide obtained meets the highest requirements of the food and pharmaceutical industries.
