Presentation of Alco :

Climate change forces every entrepreneur to show vision, courage and innovation: think ahead strategically, seek new applications and invest in the latest technologies. As a European pioneer in bio-ethanol, we do this either stand-alone or in cooperation with universities, other companies and projects on circularity. Europe wants to reach a climate-neutral and fossil-free world in 2050. We want to get there in 2030.

With headquarters in Brussels and operations on several continents, Alco (www.alcogroup.com) is one of the biggest producers and distributors of ethanol for fuel in Europe. Globally we provide ethanol to various industries: from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals, biochemistry, food and beverage. Consumers, farmers or horticulturists, many people on this planet use our high-quality products every day. Our products contribute to a more sustainable way of living. More specifically, we produce bio-ethanol with 90% lower greenhouse gas emission than petrol. Our ethanol, when blended into petrol up to 10% is better known as E10. Millions of European car drivers now lower their footprint choosing E10.
