British sugar business opened the first bioethanol production facility in the UK in 2007, alongside its Wissington sugar factory.
This plant produces up to 70 million litres of Bioethanol per year. The Group is also involved in a Joint Venture with BP and DuPont to build and operate a world scale Bioethanol facility in Hull. This is now under construction and is due to come on line in 2012. Operating as Vivergo Fuels Limited, it will produce around 420 million litres of Bioethanol from wheat each year.
