PKN ORLEN will buy and use cereal straw from Polish farmers to produce an ecological gasoline additive – second-generation bioethanol, i.e. from non-food products.
The capacity of the installation currently under construction in the Jedlicze plant will amount to 25,000 m3 tons of bioethanol per year.
This is the amount that will make it possible to refuel almost 13 million passenger cars with gasoline with this BIO additive.
The production complex will be the first of its kind in Poland and the second in Europe. The ORLEN Group will allocate approximately PLN 1.12 billion for the investment in a modern bio-product, and its production should start in 2025.
