Valmet to deliver tech for ORLEN Poludnie’s 2G ethanol plant in Poland

May 12, 2022 |

In Poland, Valmet will deliver key technology areas for ORLEN Poludnie’s S.A. planned second generation bioethanol (B2G) plant in Jedlicze, Poland. The engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) delivery includes a pretreatment BioTrac system with a capacity to process approximately 400 tons of dry straw per day, a BioPower 48 MWth lignin fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant and a Valmet DNA Automation system. 

The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the first quarter 2022. The value of the order will not be disclosed.  

The plant will start its operation in 2024. Through this project ORLEN Południe S.A. will increase its share in the biofuels market. In addition, the project will support ORLEN’s ambition to reach the EU target for bio-additives in the liquid fuels market. Bioethanol will be produced from non-food agricultural feedstocks (predominantly cereal straw) sourced mainly from Polish farmers.

Ethanol process byproduct, lignin, is used as fuel in the BioPower CHP plant, producing all steam for the ethanol plant and power.
