Merry Christmas

Mr Corn wishes Merry Christmas to everyone passing by the Goświnowice Ethanol Production Plant along the Nysa bypass.

Christmas illumination with Mr. Corn is displayed on the wall of the building where the combined heat and power system is located. This is an innovative system in which the energy contained in natural gas is converted into electricity and heat used to produce hot water or process steam.

It is considered one of the most ecological and economically justified technologies for the production of electricity and heat. Due to the fact that energy is produced on site, ZPE avoids losses resulting from the need to transmit it over long distances.

The city ice rink in Nysa is opened for another season

Agencja Rozwoju Nysy uruchomiła miejskie lodowisko przy ul. Kraszewskiego. Podobnie jak w roku poprzednim, rolę oficjalnego sponsora obiektu objęła Bioagra. Na łyżwiarzy czekają tradycyjne imprezy na świeżym powietrzu oraz porady instruktorów Szkoły Jazdy na Łyżwach.

The city ice rink is available to schools from Monday to Friday from: from 8 AM to 3 PM, and from 4 PM all interested parties can use the facility. On weekends, the ice rink is open to everyone from: from 8 AM to 9 PM (with a 1-hour technical break from 3 PM to 4 PM).

As in the previous season, residents can enjoy a Masquerade Ball and a Valentine’s Day party. The Skating School team with Mr. Corn will be back on the ice rink. All interested will be able to improve their skills under the supervision of professional instructors.

Last year, Bioagra, as the official sponsor, provided the ice rink with new skates and protective helmets.It also provided financial resources that helped ensure the operation of the ice rink until the end of the winter season. This year, the scope of support was extended to include support in developing a concept for reducing energy consumption for cooling the ice sheet.

The participants of OTYLIADA swam an impressive 352 kilometers in one night

Eleven hours after the start, at 5:00 a.m. – an hour before the end of the marathon – a dozen participants were still fighting against time and fatigue.

 This year’s OTYLIADA, the National Night Swimming Marathon “The whole Poland swims with us” was supported by, among others, Bioagra and Mr. Corn. We provided participants, judges, paramedics, swimming pool staff and volunteers with a variety of regenerative snacks and drinks.

The gold medal was won by Marcin Gawęda from Opole, who swam 33.4 km (with this result he took 16th place in the Polish ranking). The silver medal went to Rafał Świtała from Nysa, who swam a distance of 26.5 km. Justyna Tkaczyk from Opole won the bronze medal with a distance of 25 km. Once again, the whole family from Nysa swam in OTYLIADA.

 

Congratulations to all participants and organizers from Nysa Development Agency.

Mr. Corn at OTYLIADA

The 8th National Night Swimming Marathon OTYLIADA is the largest mass swimming event in Poland. Every year it takes place in dozens of swimming pools throughout the country. This year’s edition of the event in Nysa is supported by Bioagra.

The Indoor Swimming Pool in Nysa is one of the facilities where on November 18th the 8th National Night Swimming Marathon OTYLIADA will begin. 36 swimmers registered to take part in the event and, depending on the length of the declared distance, they will swim in 6 lanes. For some, participating in the marathon will be great fun and a test of abilities, and for others it will be a competition for the best possible result.

The greatest daredevils will face the challenge of breaking the OTYLIADA record from 2016. It belongs to Sebastian Karaś, who swam 54.2 km in 12 hours. Regardless of the result, each participant will receive a diploma and a commemorative medal  after the competition.

Bioagra is involved in this year’s edition of OTYLIADA – the company will provide drinks and protein bars for competitors taking part in the Nysa swimming pool. Mr. Corn will be responsible for motivating and cheering. The event is part of the company’s social activities, which supports social initiatives related to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and physical activity.

A total of over 15,000 people took part in the previous seven national editions, and also three local editions. This year’s edition of OTYLIADA, in accordance with the slogan “The whole Poland swims with us”, will take place on the night of November 18-19th in several dozen swimming pools throughout the country. The name of the event refers to Otylia Jędrzejczak, a Polish swimmer, multiple Olympic champion and world record holder, who supported it from the very beginning.

Once again, Bioagra supports the Nysa ice rink

The Nysa Development Agency is ready to open the city’s ice rink, which is one of the city’s most frequently visited recreational attractions in winter. For the second year in a row, the ice rink is supported by Bioagra as the official sponsor of the facility. In addition to financial assistance, this year the company helped develop a concept for reducing the energy consumption needed to cool the ice sheet.

This year, when preparing the opening of the Nysa ice rink, the Nysa Development Agency – in cooperation with Bioagra – set itself the goal of reducing energy consumption and ensuring the best possible conditions for skating. Due to climate change and increasing energy prices, running open ice rinks has become a real challenge for local governments in Poland. It is worth noting that last month was the hottest October in the history of measurements around the world, according to “Copernicus”, the European climate monitoring center.

Thanks to the financial and material support of Bioagra, a barrier was placed under the ice rink to prevent the ground under the tennis court – where the ice rink is located – from freezing. Additional layers of insulation were placed on the mineral layer of the court, which is a natural insulator. The main role in this case is played by styrofoam with high insulating properties and the industrial foil with very high mechanical resistance, provided by Bioagra – says Bogdan Wypałkowski, President of the Nysa Development Agency.

In the case of the ice rink in Nysa, additional insulation will allow the power of the so-called chillers to be directed to keep the ice layer in the best possible condition with the minimum possible energy consumption. Additionally, insulation under the ice rink surface will reduce the facility’s operating costs.

– Reducing energy consumption is a global and local priority – says Mirosław Obarski from Bioagra. – The approach implemented by ARN at the Nysa ice rink has been already close to our company for a long time. This year, at the Goświnowice Ethanol Production Plant, we implemented the so-called low temperature cooking. This is an improved production process that saves energy and significantly reduces the amount of water vapor that carries the odor from the ethanol production process.

Several thousand trees and bushes

Over the course of five years, Bioagra has planted several thousand trees and bushes around the Goświnowice Ethanol Production Plant (ZPE). The scale of plantings is comparable to those carried out in Wrocław and Poznań – the cities that plant the most large trees in Poland. The plantings that the company has been carrying out since 2018 have so far cost several hundred thousand PLN.

The scale of plantings is the same as in Wrocław or Poznań

The first plantings of several thousand plants were carried out around ZPE in April 2018. Within a year, Bioagra can plant as many trees in its area as Wrocław or Poznań. It should be noted that these are plantings of well-grown trees – plants that are at least 6-8 years old and specimens that are over a dozen years old – such as those planted by Bioagra at the beginning of November this year. Trees that have been growing around ZPE for several years improve the aesthetics of the area and contribute to reducing the sound and odor intensity from the production installation.

Biodiversity and food for bees

– New trees are another element of the process of building biodiversity and adding color to the area – says Mirosław Obarski from Bioagra. – The newest species planted are melliferous, which is of great importance for the ongoing queen bee breeding project at ZPE. Bioagra has been planting bee-friendly bushes and trees for several years now. They allow insects to collect pollen and honeydew, which is occurring in the form of drops, e.g. on the leaves of some deciduous trees.

Several types of trees and bushes

Many species of trees and bushes already grow around ZPE. At the beginning of the planting, closest to the ring road, evergreen conifers, thujas and cypresses were planted, which retain a uniform green and silver color in winter and summer. In the second line of trees, avenue plants appeared, which shed their leaves in winter. Native trees were selected, including maple, sycamore, hornbeam and common beech, cherry plum, silver birch and mountain ash. Black pines, Serbian spruces and small-leaved lindens were also planted on the company’s premises, as well as shrubs such as palm maples, bouquet hydrangeas, magnolias, rhododendrons, Japanese azaleas, cinquefoils and viburnums.
