Site Visit

We would like to invite you to join us for exclusive tour as we go to visit Borregaard's production facility in Sarpsborg, Norway

The bioethanol that is produced in Borregaard's biorefinery is based on extracting sugar from wood (spruce), which is then fermented to make ethanol. Ethanol is one of several products coming out of the total process. The pulp for specialty cellulose is produced by cooking spruce chips with acidic calcium bisulfite cooking liquor. After concentration of the sulfite spent liquor, the sugars are fermented and ethanol is distilled and dehydrated to get absolute ethanol. The lignin (binding agent in wood) is modified to a broad range of product applications. Lignin is also raw material for the production of vanillin, the vanilla flavour. Borregaard is the only producer of wood based vanillin.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated to the conference delegates on first come first served basis. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment
