Bioethanol production begins in Humberside
Bioethanol producer Vivergo has started up its production process from wheat at its Humberside facility.
The wheat is being supplied by grain marketing company Frontier via selected farmers under its Humber Gold brand and it has also confirmed that the milling, fermenting and distilling process has now began at the plant.
Despite a challenge in providing constantly high quality wheat this season, both Vivergo and Frontier have reiterated their desire to use only UK-sourced feedstock.
The plant is expected to be fully operational before the spring of 2013 when an official opening ceremony will take place.
