Sodra Announces World's First Commercial Biomethanol Plant (Int'l.)
Sodra,Emmelev
Date: 2020-02-28
Vaxjo, Sweden-based forest products and lumber producer cooperative SODRA is reporting construction of the world's first commercial-scale biomethanol -- a sustainable fuel from forest biomass -- plant at its pulp mill in Monsteras. The plant's first delivery will go to Emmelev A/S, a customer that will be using biomethanol in its biodiesel production.

Biomethanol is produced from the crude methanol recovered from the manufacturing process at Sodra's pulp mills. It is part of the circular process in which all parts of forest products are used for the best possible effect.

Emmelev A/S is a Danish family-owned agricultural company that has developed large-scale biodiesel production from local canola, but uses fossil methanol as a raw material in production.
