AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Sweden Biorefinery

Construction of a 300,000 tpa biorefinery

SCA Biorefinery Östrand is planning to build a new biorefinery at its Östrand pulp mill site. Around 300,000 tonnes of biofuels would be produced each year for transportation uses, along with 120,000 tonnes of biocoal to be processed into pellets and 110,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Following an environmental impact assessment, it is hoped that the permitting process will be initiated. This is expected to happen by the end of the year.

This project is now available to access without subscription for the next 7 days. To find out more about the development, click here.

AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – Spain WtE Plant

Development of a waste management centre

The preliminary draft and infrastructure feasibility plan for the development of the second phase of a waste management centre in Zubieta, San Sebastian, has been approved by the Assembly. A month will now be given for objections to be raised, and once this period has passed, the bidding process for the project will begin.
