Pannonia Bio operates a biorefinery in Tolna County, Hungary. The plant uses state of the art production processes and is a nursery for the development of new bio-based technologies. From its beginnings as a bioethanol producer in 2012, the refinery has almost tripled in size and developed into a multiproduct facility. Today, nutrition, health, biochemical and fuel bioproducts are manufactured as alternatives to fossil materials.
The biorefinery is the largest single site bioethanol plant in Europe, one of the most efficient refineries in the world and has a mission to mitigate climate change. Located on the banks of the Danube close to the town of Dunaföldvár, the biorefinery annually processes >1 million tons of grain to produce over 500 million liters of bioethanol, hundreds of thousands of tons of Pannonia Gold, Europe's benchmark protein-rich feed ingredient, and over 10 000 tons of Pannonia DCO, Central Europe's unique choice of vegetable oil.
Production of animal feed increases European food security while Pannonia Bio's ethanol protects the environment by having greenhouse gas emissions that are 30% those of the petrol it displaces.
