LONDON (ICIS)--Vivergo Fuels has begun production at its 420m litre/year biorefinery in Hull, the UK, the bioethanol joint venture said late on Wednesday.

“We have just started production, although we won’t be fully operational until the first quarter 2013,” said Anja Hazebroek, communications manager for Vivergo Fuels.

Vivergo Fuels is a joint venture between sugar producer AB Sugar, UK oil and gas major BP and US-based Dupont which was formed in 2007.

“When fully operational, Vivergo will be the largest producer of bioethanol in the UK and one of the biggest in Europe, producing 420 million litres per year. It will also be the UK’s largest single source supplier of animal feed, producing 500,000 tonnes each year,” the company said.
