Green Source gets go-ahead for €200m bioethanol plant in Kostrzyn


Green Source, a Spanish maker of biochemical products, has received the formal approval from the Kostrzyn-Slubice Special Economic Zone (KSSSE) for a project to build a huge €200m factory of ethanol in Kostrzyn (Lubuskie voivodship). The plant, which will be the firm’s third and biggest production facility, will employ 220 people when it becomes operational in 2013.

Construction work is expected to get underway in the autumn and to take 22 months. The factory will have the capacity to make 200,000 tons of ethanol and 230,000 tons of dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS), a co-product of the ethanol production process, annually.

The Kostrzyn project was first unveiled back in 2005, but a key grant from the Ministry of Economy was awarded only last month. On 30 June Green Source completed the purchase of 3.5 hectares of land from the KSSSE, a pre-condition for obtaining a permit to enter the zone.

Green Source belongs to Spanish industrial group Sniace.
