Tyczka Energie joint venture to build CO2 liquefaction plant


CropEnergies AG and Tyczka Energie GmbH have revealed plans to build a plant for the liquefaction of food quality CO2 in Zeitz, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

Drawing on biogenic CO2 (carbon dioxide) from bioethanol production, the produced CO2 will go some way to catering for ever-growing food & beverage demand, while also ensuring that the Tyczka Group has secured both a long-term and sustainable source of CO2.

Construction and operation of the liquefaction plant will be undertaken by the newly formed joint venture, CT Biocarbonic GmbH, in which each partner holds a 50% stake. With an annual production capacity of 100,000 tonnes of CO2, the plant is scheduled to commence operations in 2010.

The plant, which will provide liquefaction, purification and recovery of CO2, is located in the immediate proximity of the CropEnergies bioethanol facility in Zeitz and will benefit from the existing infrastructure.
