Vivergo UK Biofuels Plant Slated for 2022 Reopening (Int'l. Report)
UK-based Vivergo Fuels reports it plans to reboot its shuttered 2012 vintage wheat bioethanol plant in Hull, North Yorkshire, following a Department for Transport announcement that E10 petrol will be introduced at pumps across the UK beginning in September, this year. The plant is expected to resume bioethanol production in early 2022.
The 420 million lpy bioethanol plant, the largest producer in the UK and second largest in Europe -- can process 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.

Vivergo Rebooting UK WHeat-to-Bioethanol Plant (Int'l. Report)
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
