Vivergo Fuels bio-refinery, uses 1.1 million tonnes of feed grade wheat to produce 420 million litres of bio-ethanol and 500,000 tonnes of animal feed per year. Since commissioning the liquefaction plant had suffered from blockages downstream of the milling plant due to straw and chaff passing through the flour. Working with the mill manufacturers an engineering solution was agreed and successfully implemented to overcome the capacity constraint.
