About Us

  • Pannonia Ethanol produces fuel ethanol and animal feed. The company is part of Ethanol Europe Renewables Limited
  • Pannonia Ethanol is located in Dunaföldvár, Tolna County, Hungary. The facility currently utilizes roughly 575,000 tons of corn annually , producing up to 240 million litres of ethanol, and 175,000 tons of Dried Distillers Grains with Solubles (DDGS), a high protein animal feed. We produce as much DDGS as ethanol.
  • The production process at the plant uses a closed system, minimizing waste as well as purifying and reusing water involved in the production.
  • Pannonia Ethanol produces some of the most environmentally friendly ethanol in Europe, with green house gas (GHG) savings well in excess of those required under the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive (RED).

Ethanol is a clean-burning, high-octane motor fuel that is produced from renewable sources.

At its most basic, ethanol is grain alcohol, produced from crops such as maize.
Both Rudolf Diesel and Henry Ford believed that automobile fuel would be alcohol derived from agricultural crops.

E10 - 10% bio-ethanol and 90% unleaded gasoline.

Since mid 2009 also E10 can be sold in the EU market and is now being used in France and Germany. All modern cars can run on this type of blend.

E85 - 85% bio-ethanol and 15% unleaded gasoline.

E85 is an alternative fuel for use in flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs). An FFV is a renewable fuel vehicle with an internal combustion engine designed to run on more than one fuel, usually gasoline blended with ethanol fuel, and both fuels are stored in the same common tank. In 2006, FFVs were practically unknown in Europe yet now over 130,000 FFVs are already on European roads.
The first commercial flexible fuel vehicle was the Ford Model T, produced from 1908 through 1927. It was fitted with a carburetor with adjustable jetting, allowing use of gasoline or ethanol, or a combination of both.
It is important to note that it does not take a special vehicle to run on "ethanol". All vehicles are "ethanol vehicles" and can use up to 5% ethanol with no modifications to the engine, and all modern cars can use up to 10%.

About Ethanol

Ethanol is a clean-burning, high-octane motor fuel which is produced from renewable sources.

At its most basic, ethanol is grain alcohol produced from crops such as corn.
At our new plant at Dunaföldvár, we will be using corn which will not only efficiently produce fuel in substantial and economically viable quantities but provide a new and valuable market into which local growers can sell their crop. As a byproduct of this process, we will also produce a high protein livestock feed.
Distillers grain is an important co-product of drymill ethanol production. The dry mill ethanol production process uses only the starch portion of the corn, which is about 70% of the kernel. All the remaining nutrients - protein, fat, minerals and vitamins are concentrated into distillers grain.
Distillers grain can be fed to livestock, wet or dry. Dried distillers grain (DGG) is the most common variety. Drying the distillers grain increases its shelf life and improves its ability to be transported over longer distances. If a consistent nearby market can be secured, producers can supply the feed as wet distillers grain (WDG). The wet form is not as easily transportable but the cost of drying is removed. DDGS is suitable for beef cattle, pork, poultry and fish. The feed is an economical partial replacement for corn, soy bean meal in animal feeds.

There are various methods of extracting biofuel from the crop.
This is an interactive demonstration of the Dry Mill Ethanol Process used by Fagan Inc. at Granite Falls, Minnesota, USA.

It is similar to our proposed project here in Hungary.

  • Energy value of bio fuels, including fuels based on renewables within fuel consumption 19.6 PJ.  (Web page in Hungarian)

Legislation & Policy - European Union

Renewable Energy Directive/Fuel Quality Directive 2009
The Renewable Energy Directive (RED) imposes stretching renewables targets for 2020 across the EU. Targets in the Renewable Energy Directive and Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) require by 2020:
  • 20% of energy across the EU to be renewable
  • 10% of energy used in transport to be renewable
  • a minimum reduction in GHG emissions from road transport of 6%
