Polish ethanol producer takes Whitefox ICE membrane dehydration system to one-step

February 17, 2021 |

In Poland, BGW Sp. z o. o. is to install its Whitefox ICE membrane dehydration system at BGW’s 108 million liters per year plant in Rąbczyn. The project involves installing a Whitefox system designed to produce up to 400,000 liters per day of anhydrous ethanol. The project is in construction and is due to start up towards the end of 2021.

Whitefox ICE is a membrane-based technology solution that dehydrates water-rich recycle streams to produce high-purity ethanol. Its technology is already operating in 8 US ethanol facilities, eliminating recycle streams from molecular sieves to improve energy consumption, carbon emissions and operational costs. The membrane solution developed for BGW takes the technology one step further by being the sole dehydration technology in the stream, rather than sitting alongside molecular sieves and thereby providing a step-change improvement in overall plant efficiency.
