BioEnergo is planning a refinery for advanced biofuels in the industrial area of ??Kaana in Kaana, whose products will reduce traffic emissions. As a raw material, the plant uses the by-products of the sawmill industry, which process 60,000 cubic meters of advanced bioethanol into passenger cars and 130,000 MWh of advanced liquefied biogas as fuel for heavy transport. In addition, the refinery produces 73,000 tonnes of lignin for, among other things, “green” asphalt and 44,000 tonnes of CO2 for industry and the circular economy. At full capacity, the plant directly and indirectly employs an estimated 250 people.
