silo enviral

ENVIRAL was established in 2004 as the first producer of bioethanol in Slovakia. The commercial production of bioethanol was launched in July 2007. Current annual production capacity is 175,000 m3 of bioethanol. The Company puts emphasis on quality and state-of-the-art technology and employs the brightest professionals, qualified in the field of chemical technology.

The company’s premises are large and aside from the production plant itself there are storage capacities for 1/3 of annual raw material needs. This raw material is delivered using our own railway siding, connected to a rail junction located in Leopoldov, or by trucks. All of the produced bioethanol is delivered to customers by rail, which further decreases the greenhouse gas emissions from transport.

The bioethanol production in ENVIRAL is a wasteless process. The plant also operates its own wastewater treatment plant, which ensures the high purity of discharged wastewater. In the wastewater treatment process biogas with high methane content is produced, which is subsequently used to produce steam in our boiler room. The whole process is focused on minimizing electricity and natural gas consumption, enabling the bioethanol produced in ENVIRAL to reach a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of at least 70%, when compared with the fossile equivalent - gasoline.

The guarantee of quality of products for ENVIRAL’s customers is the implementation and certification of following systems: STN EN ISO 9001:2015, HACCP, ISCC, GMP+ and ISO 14001:2015.
