A biorefinery project in Zamora, in the region of Castile and León, western Spain, has attracted USD 178 million from foreign investors, EFE reported last week.   

EA Green Energy has committed the investment, which will enable the construction and start-up of the facility, called the Barcial del Barco (Zamora) Multifunctional Biorefinery.

The plant will have the capacity to produce 160,000 cu m of bioethanol and 120,000 tonnes of feed, using as raw materials beets, biomass and corn sourced within 50 km from its location. It is now looking to sign a construction agreement with a large Spanish construction company.

EA Green Energy is considering a second project in the town of La Robla, also in Castile and León.
