It's an exciting time as our £350m plant continues to ramp up production. When fully operational over coming months, we'll be one of Europe's biggest bioethanol producers and the UK's largest single source supplier of animal feed.
In simple terms we take feed-grade wheat grown at local farms in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and process it – with no waste – into bioethanol (a green transport fuel that is mixed with regular petrol at the pump) and protein rich animal feed for cows (and other animals too!).
It's that simple – the only catch is that we do it on a massive scale.
Our team of more than 150 highly-skilled people drives our business and will make us one of the leading biofuel and animal feed producers in Europe.
A further 2000+ jobs are sustained directly and indirectly in the UK, through our business across agriculture, logistics, professional services, engineering support and many other fields.
The Vivergo team has been working hard since it was formed in 2007 as a joint venture between AB Sugar, BP and DuPont to create a Biofuel business for the future.
