Company

The distillation of agricultural alcohol has been the business of Ryssen Alcools since 1829. Today, the company operates one of Europe's largest plants for the rectification and dehydration of agricultural raw alcohol. Every year, we produce 2 million hectoliters of high quality alcohol.
Our total production capacity is 6,000 hectoliters per day. It is produced in our plant in Loon-Plage, in the harbour of Dunkirk. The plant is divided into rectification and dehydration units. Ryssen Alcools also operates its own tank farm on site which enables us to store a large variety of different grades of alcohols which we deliver to a total of over 150 customers in 36 countries all over the world.
Ryssen Alcools manufactures extra neutral alcohol of exclusively agricultural origin for the most demanding potable and industrial uses as well as dehydrated alcohol for industrial and chemical uses. In addition, dehydrated alcohol is produced to be used as a fuel.
We develop individual solutions for the specific need of every customer. Quality of the product and flexibility concerning the conditioning and delivery are our main focus. In order to pursue the tradition of Ryssen Alcools' European leadership of producing and marketing high quality alcohol, we continue to invest in the most advanced technologies and equipment.
Ryssen Alcools is a subsidiary of the CropEnergies group, one of the leading bioethanol producers in Europe with additional production facilities in Germany, Belgium and the UK. The shares of CropEnergies AG (ISIN DE000A0LAUP1) are listed in the Prime Standard at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
