Kurana is the first biorefinery project of its type in the world, where biogas and nutrient recovery is integrated with a bioethanol facility.
At the facility, byproducts left after the production of bioethanol are being mixed and supplemented by organic materials and digested for biogas.
The biogas is being utilized in cogeneration units and steam boilers.
A part of thermal energy and electricity is being used for technological process. Excess electricity and heat is sold to other industries and district heating.
