Cristalco to shut down Reims ethanol plant for extended maintenance period

May 14, 2018 |

In France, Reuters reports that Cristalco will shut down its 350,000 cu m ethanol plant in Reims for three weeks during June for annual maintenance. It typically shuts down for two weeks of maintenance but the bearish market has led the company to choose to keep production offline for an additional week in hopes of supporting prices. Producing ethanol from about 43% beet and the remainder from wheat, the facility accounts for about 70% of the sugar producer’s ethanol production capacity.
