About Us

We produce second generation bioethanol. Bioethanol is produced on an industrial scale for over 40 years, using,until the end of 2010, the technology of direct fermentation of sugars. The agricultural base used is the worldwide food circuit. This development has created a serious international deficit in the price of food products with high sugar content and starches over the years, like wheat, corn, sugar cane and any other foodstuff containing sugars. The new technology, called "second generation", completely revolutionizes the production of this fuel, starting from the saccharification of cellulose, which occurs in large quantities in any non-food plant species. An enzymatic process, specifically developed and patented on industrial scale, allows the production of primary sugars from plants with no food content, and their fermentation to obtain biofuel on a large scale, without interfering with the already devastated primary food market.

The process separates the cellulose from lignin, (second major component of plant matter), making available, the former for the subsequent fermentation, and the latter for the direct conversion into electricity through normal thermodynamic cycles, exclusively powered by renewable biomass.

Bioethanol greenest of green


This total revolution will allow to dispose large amounts of product over the coming decades, through crops specifically harmonized, occupying only marginal areas, pre-desert, which are unsuitable for food crops but exploitable through plant species wisely selected, and using all wastewater already nearby available, which are equally marginalizated.

What we offer


Our company has signed a development plan of some production units in agro industrial chain with the Tunisian government and is going to produce some of vegetable production units on modular areas of 12,500 hectares, provided with industrial transformation system on site for the production of 100,000 tons of standard bioethanol per year for mixtures with unleaded petrol + transformation of the residual lignin into electrical energy.

  • Something Special

    Advanced solutions for the second-generation ethanol industry

This activity, commercially directed to the new European regulated markets through export of second-generation bioethanol, lays the foundation for this technology on currently unused areas, keeping the use of agricultural land separate from marginal land, and offering a great opportunity to sustainable employment revival in areas involved in migration flow.

The aim of this new activity is the real possibility of integrating and replace the use of fossil resources for traction drives, air traffic and renewable energy in general, on appropriate scale.
