PROCUREMENT OF RAW MATERIAL

Procurement of raw material

A key stage in the successful outcome of the activities of the Vertex Bioenergy is the task of acquiring raw material for the production of biofuels.

Currently, cereal grains such as wheat, barley, corn and sorghum, are the most important for the ethanol production process in the plants of Vertex Bioenergy, not only for their alcohol yield, but also for their production of high protein content food, highly valued in the feed sector (DDGS); therefore the energetic and protein properties of the cereal are used in an integral way.

Throughout its history, Vertex Bioenergy has accumulated a vast experience in the procurement and appropriate logistical handling of raw materials, acting in a fast and versatile manner at an international level, in purchases in the domestic market, and establishing contracts directly with the farmers, optimizing and ensuring at all times the supply of the plants. In the same way, it has a broad knowledge of the applicable regulations to operate in the European Union.
