Relevance to the SDG

BIOSKOH uses lignocellulosic biomass from agri-forest residues and dedicated crop cultures to produce second generation bioethanol to be used as transport fuel, thereby increasing the share of renewable energy and helping to meet European biofuel mandates without interfering with the food chain. The plant, located in a rural area of Slovakia, helps the local economy by making use of a dismissed industrial facility and giving farmers an option for diversifying their cultures on lands with low productivity.
