Plan for bio-fuel plant in Carlow
RTE Business News, Wednesday, 23 January 2008

"Construction of a large bio-refinery in Carlow - which would produce
300 million litres of bioethanol a year - could start later this year.

The proposal by Sustainable Industries Ireland is expected to cost 200m
and would employ 200 people in production.

Planning for the bio-refinery is said to be at an advanced stage. It
will be able to convert agricultural products including beet, oats and
wheat into bioethanol - a substitute for petrol. The plant would also
make livestock feed, fertiliser and chemical compounds.

A second aspect of the development would involve the creation of biogas
from farming, sewerage and municipal waste to produce electrical power."
