CropEnergies - Leading European producer of bioethanol

Ensuring mobility in a climate friendly way - today and in the future - is CropEnergies' business. Founded in Mannheim, Germany, in 2006, the young and dynamically growing member of the Südzucker Group is one of the leading European manufacturers of sustainably produced bioethanol for the fuel sector today. With its four modern production facilities in Germany, Belgium, the UK and France as well as trading offices in Brazil and Chile, CropEnergies produces approximately 1.3 million cubic meters of bioethanol per year. They mainly replace petrol and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 70%. This makes CropEnergies one of the leading companies in a major emerging market.
Bioethanol - A market of the future
CropEnergies is growing along with the rising demand for energy worldwide. As a substitute for petrol, sustainably produced bioethanol is an answer to the future challenges of energy supply, especially in the transport sector. Unlike conventional fossil energy sources, bioethanol is not in limited supply but is a regenerative fuel produced from renewable raw materials. At the same time, bioethanol can substantially reduce climate-damaging emissions of CO2. Bioethanol is therefore often referred to as the fuel of the future. Bioethanol has established itself as the world's No. 1 biofuel.
CropEnergies - Trailblazer with strong roots
We are at the start of a new energy era. As an early entrant, CropEnergies is one of the leaders in the bioethanol market not only in Germany but at the European level, too. Embedded in the Südzucker Group, the largest sugar producer in Europe, CropEnergies AG combines the dynamics and growth potential of a young, aspiring company with the strength and innovation power of a successful, internationally active group.
