Ethanol - A market of the future
CropEnergies is growing along with the rising demand for renewable energy worldwide. As a substitute for petrol, sustainably produced ethanol is an answer to the future challenges of climate-friendly energy supply, especially in the transport sector: With ethanol, the emission of CO2, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter can be significantly reduced. Ethanol is therefore often referred to as the fuel of the future and has established itself as the world's No. 1 biofuel. Unlike conventional fossil energy sources, ethanol is not in limited supply but is a regenerative fuel produced from renewable raw materials.
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 ethanol 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.
