LONDON (ICIS news)--German bioethanol producer Sauter Gruppe was restarting its 160,000 tonne/year unit at Schwedt on Wednesday, three days later than planned, a company official said.
The delay in restarting the plant, also known as NBE Nordbrandenburger BioEnergie, was due to extremely cold temperatures in the area, which caused freezing of pipelines in the plant, as well as logistics problems, the official added.
“The first ethanol supplies will resume at the weekend [28-29 January],” the official said.
The unit had been in a scheduled shutdown since 16 January for repair work on columns.
