CropEnergies - renewable products from biomass


Sustainable, renewable products from biomass - that's what CropEnergies stands for. Our products contribute to a climate-friendly world and ensure that fossil carbons remain in the ground permanently and do not continue to drive climate change. We have been producing food and animal feed, biogenic CO2, renewable ethanol and neutral alcohol for the European market since 2005. While doing so, we comply with the legal requirements, strict certifications and approvals that apply in this context.

CO2 savings through plant-based chemical raw materials

Our new business field of renewable biochemicals makes a valuable contribution to climate protection. Fossil carbons must be replaced by renewables in the future. It is not only the EU that has set itself this goal. Many studies show the future change and the leading chemical companies are already taking first steps here. Our first survey also showed that the vast majority of the companies surveyed are already using renewable raw materials or plan to do so in the near future.

Investment in the future

CropEnergies AG, Mannheim, and Johnson Matthey, London, a leading company for sustainable technologies, have concluded an exclusive planning, license and technical service agreement for a plant that will enable us to produce renewable ethyl acetate from sustainable ethanol near our production site in Zeitz.

The plant is to be designed for 50,000 tonnes of ethyl acetate per year, which can be produced from renewable ethanol and using renewable energy. An investment of about 80 to 100 million euros is planned for this.

All relevant information about our renewable ethyl acetate can be found in our flyer.
