Eni says Crescentino revamp will be up and running by H1 2020

February 17, 2020 |

In Italy, Versalis, Eni’s chemical company, has announced that all the plants at Crescentino (Vercelli, Piedmont) will be up and running by the first half of 2020. The plant, acquired in November 2018, is designed for industrial-scale production of bioethanol and has been upgraded with an investment of more than 15 million euro.

The biomass power plant for renewable electricity generation and part of the water treatment plant with biogas production have already been restarted and activities are ongoing to restart the bioethanol plant within the first half of 2020. The plant uses the PROESA® proprietary technology, one of the most innovative in the biomass chemistry sector.

The layout of the Crescentino plants makes it possible to use a system to completely recycle all water and also makes the site completely energy independent through the use of lignin as feedstock for the power plant.
