Dong Energy, a leading Nordic energy group headquartered in Denmark, plans to build a bioethanol plant at Studstrupværket, a power plant located in Århus County, Jutland. Dong Energy says that by exploiting a surplus of steam from the production of electricity and heat at Studstrupværket, energy consumption for production of bioethanol can be reduced by 30-40%.

The authorities in Århus County Council are currently considering an application from Dong Energy to build the plant, which will be using 1G technology (starch-based bioethanol). In the long term however, the energy group plans to further develop the process to 2G technology (biomass-based ethanol).

Dong Energy recently announced plans to invest DKK 10 bn (USD 1.7 bn) in renewable energy over the next four years. The investment will be in wind turbines, in particular large offshore wind turbines, bioethanol, subterranean hot water and water power. The news was reported by Erhvervsbladet.
