The government has made two planned bioethanol and biogas power plant investments worth a combined €270 million “priority projects”, speeding up the process of obtaining permits for their construction, a decree by the National Development and Economy Ministry shows.
A former sugar refinery in Kaba (E Hungary) will be converted to turn out an annual 101,000 cubic meters of bioethanol from 288,000 tones of maize, while generating 55MW of electricity. The cost of the project is about €130 million.
A similar plant will be built at a cost of €140 million in Dunaalmás (N Hungary). The plant will turn out an annual 124,000 cubic meters of bioethanol from 288,000 tons of maize and generate 70MW of electricity. (MTI-Econews)
