Clariant Romania project is mechanically complete and ready for start-up

January 23, 2022 |

In Romania, Clariant’s first full-scale commercial sunliquid plant for the production of cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues is mechanically completed and ready for start-up. The flagship plant will process approx. 250,000 tons of straw to produce 50,000 tons of cellulosic ethanol annually, contributing to lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector.

After completing the construction and starting commissioning in October 2021, Bilfinger Tebodin keeps supporting Clariant on its largest project in Romania so far. Since November 2017, when the EPCM agreement has been signed, Bilfinger Tebodin was engaged in engineering, project and construction management of Clariant’s flagship biofuels plant in Podari, Romania.

Jorg Gerritsen, Project manager at Bilfinger Tebodin, comments: ‘Together we achieved state reception and mechanically completed the project. Currently, we are handing the project over to Clariant to further manage the commissioning and start-up stage. This phase is expected to be completed early 2022.’
