Creating Positive Impact. Globally.

We're not just talking the talk on sustainability—we're walking the walk. Facing the urgent challenge of climate change mitigation head-on, we understand that real solutions need to fit within existing infrastructure. From corn to barley, we unlock a vast spectrum of energy and food products, proving that practical, innovative approaches can lead the way to a sustainable future.


Clonbio Group is a leading provider of sustainable biorefining solutions, specializing in soil nutrition, animal nutrition, human nutrition, ethanol, and biogas. With a commitment to innovation and environmental stewardship, we strive to create products that enhance the well-being of our planet and its inhabitants.

Engineering a Sustainable World

Pannonia Bio provide environmental benefits to multiple industries.

On the banks of the River Danube in Hungary, Pannonia Bio operates the largest single site biorefinery in Europe, manufacturing a host of products with environmental benefits to multiple industries.

Circular Economy

Imagine a world where every plant fuels a cycle of endless renewal, capturing the sun's energy, vital nutrients, and CO2. Through our innovative processes, we tap into this natural potential, crafting essential materials for our society—from biofuels that power transport, to nutritious food and animal feed, organic fertilizers that rejuvenate our soil, and biogas that energizes our communities. We're not just using resources; we're revitalizing them, ensuring a sustainable world where future generations thrive on the principles of the circular economy.

Climate Change Mitigation

Climate change mitigation is crucial in reducing global warming impacts. Ethanol, a renewable biofuel, effectively reduces transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions by over 70% compared to conventional petrol. This not only offers a cost-effective decarbonization strategy but also enhances energy security by reducing dependency on fossil fuels.

Additionally, the development of materials from renewable resources, such as prebiotics, dietary fibers, advanced biomethane decreases reliance on fossil-based products and supports environmental conservation. Advanced technologies in biorefineries improve efficiency, minimize waste, and reduce water consumption, further contributing to sustainable industrial practices and climate change mitigation.

The Bioeconomy revolution

Significant challenges in environmental, social and economic sustainability mean that society needs to take a long hard look at how it produces, processes and consumes a range of materials.

There is a need to seek out new economic growth models that move beyond fossil-based raw materials and petrochemical technologies. The bioeconomy has emerged as a major potential alternative, promising to meet societal needs in a more environmentally sustainable manner.

We recognize the role that the bioeconomy needs to play in a more sustainable future.

We will continue to invest in bioeconomic solutions as a clear statement that clever business in the future will be clean, green and sustainable.

CO2 capture and storage (CCS)

CCS is a pivotal component of our biorefinery processes, allowing us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint. During the stages of fermentation and biogas purification, we can efficiently capture CO2. Utilizing innovative technologies, we can securely store this captured CO2 deep underground, specifically in onshore depleted gas fields or suitable rock formations. This method not only helps in mitigating the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere but also exemplifies our commitment to pioneering sustainable solutions in environmental management.

Socioeconomic Impact

Positioned in a rural settings, our biorefineries have become beacons of positive socioeconomic change for their nearby communities. By directly purchasing local crops, each biorefinery supports the local agricultural sector, providing a more stable market for farmers and enhancing the local economy. This engagement fosters a symbiotic relationship, ensuring that the benefits of industrial development are shared with those in the immediate agricultural vicinity.

The biorefinery's influence extends beyond agriculture, catalyzing a broad spectrum of positive impacts within the community. It has been instrumental in creating high-quality, permanent jobs, which in turn has led to a reduction in outmigration and unemployment. Furthermore, the presence of the biorefinery has led to improvements in public services and has offered better compensation packages for employees, contributing to an overall enhancement of quality of life.

Financially, the plants have significantly uplifted the economic status of the surrounding area, generating substantial financial surpluses that can be reinvested into local development. The effects of such an establishment have been profound, indicating that few industries possess the capability to transform rural environments so substantially while simultaneously contributing to climate change mitigation and reducing energy dependence.
