TORONTO (ICIS)--Abengoa plans to build a 100m litre/year second generation bioethanol plant in Hugoton, Kansas.

In a statement on Friday, the Spanish biofuels firm said the project would run on its enzymatic hydrolysis technology.

The project, which was being jointly developed with the US Department of Energy (DOE), would become the largest commercial bioethanol plant using biomass as feedstock to date, Abengoa said.

Media officials at Abengoa’s headquarters in Seville, Spain, were not immediately available for additional comment.
