PKM Duda building an ethanol plant in Poland

PKM DUDA is a group of Polish meat producing businesses and they're teaming up with manufacturing construction company Lurgi to build a new ethanol plant in Poland. They will be building a facility with a capacity for 33 million gallons a year of ethanol from corn. The plant will consume about 330,000 tonnes a year of corn as a feedstock. Since the European Union has directed that gasoline and diesel fuels should consist of 5.75 percent biofuels by 2010, everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. The requirement means a demand of 400 million gallons of biofuel for the Polish market alone. Duda will also be working on bio-gas production from its meat production facilities.
