The first construction phase of the joint project EthaNa, in which 11 project partners are involved, has started.

B+B Engineering is responsible for the engineering of the two plant components rapeseed dehulling and ethanolic mild extraction.

On 17.12.2018, the construction of the first part of the rape dehulling plant was started at the project partner Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes (CBP) in Leuna.

Completion and functional testing of the plant section is scheduled for the end of March 2019. The entire plant is scheduled to go into operation in 2020.
