Intention: The main goal of the EU-funded project LIGNOFLAG is the construction of a unique commercial plant to produce cellulose-ethanol derived from agricultural residual materials based on the innovative sunliquid® technology. The new flagship will be established in Podari, southwestern Rumania.
Next to the main goal, the project follows several subgoals:
Establishing an energy-self-sufficient, sustainable production process for cellulose-ethanol by using side products to produce renewable energy and fertilizers
Optimization and efficiency enhancement of the production processes up to 60.000 tons ethanol per year
Determining a license model for the sunliquid® technology and mapping of replica and growth potentials in other Rumanian and European regions
Developing a marketing strategy that comprises distribution and marketing actions for cellulose ethanol and sunliquid® technology
