Pannonia Bio Name Change

We changed our name to Pannonia Bio Zrt. By rebranding ourselves and becoming a truly bio-based technology company with nutritional, agricultural and bioethanol product lines, we believe we will be providing our customers with the most innovative technological services available to the market today. 


Pannonia Bio operates a biorefinery in Dunaföldvár, Tolna County, Hungary with feed grade corn as the biomass used in processing. Animal feed, bioethanol and corn oil are produced from this feedstock. Farms in the region supply over one million tons of corn to the plant each year. From this, the refinery produces 325,000 tons of animal feed, 450 million litres of bioethanol and 10,000 tons of corn oil.


A modern biorefinery is able to bring economic and social recovery to rural communities, and it was revealed in a study entitled "Sustainable rural renaissance through an example of a bioethanol plant", which was presented at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences on Tuesday.


Pannonia Bio Zrt. signed a EUR 135 million credit agreement with the Hungarian Bank Consortium, established with the participation of Budapest Bank, K & H, Magyar Export-Import Bank and Raiffeisen Bank.

Pannonia Bio will thus be able to further increase its capacity to produce bioethanol and non-GM animal feed, to make it more efficient and to make new investments in biotechnology. It also creates new jobs and further exports and increases the degree to which fodder can be bought.
