Vivergo Rebooting UK WHeat-to-Bioethanol Plant (Int'l. Report)
Vivergo Fuels
Date: 2021-03-01
Hull, UK-based Vivergo Fuels reports it will reboot it's shuttered wheat-to-bioethanol plant in Saltend, Near Hull, following the UK Government's recently announced increase in the country's renewable fuels blend rate from the present E5 to E10. At 420 million lpy, the facility was one of the UK's largest producer of bioethanol when it closed in 2018 due to "inaction over the future of renewable fuels as well as high wheat feedstock prices, low bioethanol prices and slow market uptake on biofuels."

Vivergo Fuels was formed in 2007 as a joint venture between AB Sugar, BP and DuPont. The company was also one of the government's Northern Powerhouse partners. (Source: Vivergo Fuels, PR, Website, Feb., 2021) Contact: Vivergo Fuels, +44 01482 700850 www.vivergofuels.com

Date: 2018-09-19
Following on our Sept. 7 coverage, UK wheat-to-ethanol producer Vivergo Fuels is citing high wheat prices and delays implementing biofuels legislation for its planned closure of its bioethanol plant in Hull. The plant is scheduled for the end of the month.

The 420 million lpy bioethanol plant is the largest producer in the UK and second largest in Europe. It halted production late last year before resuming operations in March. The plant processes 1.1 million tpy of wheat and supplies 500,000 tpy of animal feed to 800 farms.

Vivergo Fuels was established as a JV between AB Sugar, BP and DuPont in 2007. (Source: Vivergo Fuels, The Chemical Engineer, 17 Sept., 2018))Contact: Vivergo Fuels, +44 01482 700800, www.vivergofuels.com

Vivergo Announces UK Wheat-to-Biofuel Plant Closure (Int'l)
Vivergo Fuels
Date: 2018-09-07
Further to our April 13th coverage, Vivergo Fuels reports it plans to permanently shutter its £350 million, locally sourced wheat-to-ethanol biofuel plant at Saltend , UK, at the end of September.

The company is blaming government "inaction over the future of renewable fuels" as well as high wheat feedstock prices, low bioethanol prices and slow market uptake on biofuels for the impending closure.

In a December 2017 statement, the company noted: "If the (UK) government does not increase the blend level to 9.75 pct and actively support the introduction of E10, the industry will be left in an unsustainable situation with excess capacity and there are likely to be casualties."
