Kalundborg Demonstration Plant
The Inbicon Biomass Refinery is one of three large renewable energy plants

​To design the Inbicon Biomass Refinery at Kalundborg to run at 30,000 tonnes biomass per year, we scaled up our process about four times from our largest pilot plant.

Since 2009, we have recorded more than 15,000 hours of continuous operation. This has allowed us to prove our technology and designs and to build vital experience to design commercial scale Inbicon Biomass Refineries.




​In November 2009, under the EU Seventh Framework Programme, six partners signed the KAlundborg CELLulosic Ethanol project (KACELLE), devoted to demonstrating and further optimizing the Kalundborg cellulosic ethanol plant. The project started in August 2009 and was finalised in December 2013.

The KACELLE project received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. FP7EN/239379.

Full scale plant design
While we constructed our Kalundborg plant, we began designing a commercial model 12 times larger which has since been improved as we operated our demonstration plant. From the knowledge gained at Kalundborg, this has been optimised and is now ready to be sold via a license model.

Maabjerg Energy Concept
An Inbicon Biomass Refinery is the centrepiece of a renewable energy park on the North Western edge of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula - Maabjerg Energy Concept.
The Inbicon Biomass Refinery is one of three large renewable energy plants, exchanging by-products with one another. The Maabjerg Energy project will convert 300,000 tonnes of wheat straw annually to second generation bioethanol and other bioenergy products.

The work done at Kalundborg and in Maabjerg has been a springboard to commercial projects in Brazil, Southeast Asia, China and North America
