Start of the construction phase of the cellulosic ethanol plant in Craiova in Romania

On the 12 September 2018, Clariant officially started the construction of the first large-scale commercial sunliquid® plant for the production of cellulosic ethanol made from agricultural residues. The realization of the plant represents the biggest industrial commitment by an international corporation in the region of Craiova in Rumania. The construction of the plant will provide a whole range of benefits for this ruralregion. It will allow local farmers to establish an additional stream of income by selling currently underutilized straw to the plant. During the construction phase of the new plant, several hundred persons will be employed from locally based companies wherever possible.
