Roquette is a French company present on 3 continents (21 production sites) that processes plant raw materials. Its starch-related activity is highly energy-consuming, with significant steam requirements. At its site in Alsace, the company is making progress in two projects focused on the production of thermal energy from renewable energies: geothermal technology and biomass.
With an industrial presence on 3 continents encompassing 21 production sites, the company consumed over 7,000 GWh (109 Wh) of natural gas in 2015. With these projects, the site should reduce its fossil energy dependency by a factor of 4.
