T.B.Fruit group of companies, the largest fruit and berry processor in Ukraine, is considering the possibility of building its own factory for the production of industrial alcohol in Lviv region, founder of T.B.Fruit Taras Barschovsky has said.
“We are talking about industrial alcohol from wastewater that goes to wastewater treatment plants for production of pectin,” he told Interfax-Ukraine.
Barschovsky specified that investment in the plant could be about $800,000.
T.B.Fruit is a vertically integrated international group of companies with a closed production cycle (growing raw materials, processing, transportation).
The total capacity of T.B.Fruit processing plants is 1.2 million tonnes of concentrated juice per year.
T.B.Fruit in 2019 occupied 10% of the world juice market. With the launch of a plant in Poland in August 2020, the figure could reach 12-14%.
