The “European biorefineries: realising the potential of the biobased economy” policy event was held in the European Parliament on 14 October 2014. More than 200 participants representing the EU institutions, member states, industry, and the farming community attended the event to discuss the important role of biorefineries in realising the European biobased economy.
ePURE represents the European renewable ethanol industry at the EU level. Our mission is to promote renewable ethanol in Europe through the formation of policies and legislation that benefit both industry and society alike. We pursue this by representing our members’ interests to the European Institutions, Member States as well as Brussels-based stakeholders and media.
ePURE has a permanent Secretariat in Brussels.
Our 24 member companies throughout 16 member states account for 90% of the installed renewable ethanol production capacity in Europe. The ethanol produced among our members is used for all end-uses, i.e. fuel, potable and industrial uses.
An additional 34 companies are Associate Members of ePURE. These companies are from various sectors, do not produce ethanol but do have a strong interest in the promotion of ethanol production.
