Governmental officials from various different countries around the world showed great interest in Lantmännen Agroetanol’s biorefinery operations.

– It was the first time I participated in a UN conference, and it was amazing to be part of this truly global forum discussing the transition from fossil to renewable fuels. I was happy to see that other countries were interested in our business, says Carl von Schantz.
