£350 million biorefinery injects £1 million a month into East Yorkshire agriculture

East Yorkshire biorefinery, Vivergo, one of Europe's largest producers of bioethanol and protein rich animal feed, is said to be boosting the region's wheat farms to the value of £1m a month, on the back of an improved harvest. Vivergo opened its £350m plant in Saltend last year, helping local farmers and creating agricultural jobs in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Rick Taylor, commercial director at Vivergo, claims to have bolstered the UK's economy by creating around 2,400 jobs so far, with the figure set to increase to around 3,800 once the plant is at full production later this year. Many of those jobs will be in the agricultural sector.
