Bioagra continues to increase employment
Bioagra SA, Employer of the Year 2019 of the Nysa county, continues to increase the staffing of the Ethanol Production Plant. From October last year the company has hired dozens of new employees and is looking for more. Ethanol, the company’s main product, is currently one of the most sought-after raw materials in the world.
The company is looking for employees, incl. for grain and feed and chemical laboratories, maintenance, logistics and warehouse management and production departments. You can find employment in various positions, e.g. mechanic-plumber, employee in the warehouse of finished products and grain, as well as an operator of an automated production line.
Bioagra SA operates in a very stable industry which – in addition – is supported by the increased demand for ethanol for disinfectants. Today, the company produces more ethanol, takes more raw material for production, and does more and different analysis. Therefore, the number of laboratories in which the company has introduced a new work organization is growing to increase the comfort of employees.

Action addressed to the local community
How to effectively increase security?
To reduce the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading and increase your own safety at home and work, use the well-known recommendations of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate. It is also worth to take advantage of the recommendations developed by the Medical Department of the University of Hong Kong (presented below in the form of infographics).
In the last few decades, the inhabitants of Asia have survived several major viral epidemics (bird flu and swine flu and SARS).
At the same time, they developed behaviors and habits that help significantly increase safety and avoid contact with various types of viruses, including coronavirus.
You can fight the virus successfully by implementing these few additional, simple rules regarding personal hygiene and people-to-people approaches.
Hong Kong has a population of 7.5 million. They live on an area only twice as large as that occupied by Warsaw, in which 1.8 million people live.
Nomination for the Tryton Nyski award
Arkadiusz Komorowski was nominated for the Tryton Nyski honorary distinction in this year’s 22nd edition of this prestigious competition. The director of ZPE “Goświnowice” was nominated as the originator of revitalization of the Old Mill in Nysa and a unique program for reducing sound and smell generated in the production of ethanol.
The Tryton Nyski honorary distinction is an expression of the highest recognition of the local community and is awarded to persons, organizations and institutions particularly distinguished for the Nysa commune.
– All my adult professional life is related to Nysa and this region – said Arkadiusz Komorowski during the awarding gala. – We are proud that we can develop the plant in a sustainable way – taking care of environmental protection and in harmony with the local community. We are increasing production, increasing the number of jobs in the plant and its surroundings in many market segments – added Arkadiusz Komorowski.
Bioagra has already invested nearly PLN 20,000,000 in sound and smell reduction. As a result of these and subsequent activities, the company will soon become one of the most ecological plants at the European level and will produce completely new products.
Arkadiusz Komorowski is also the originator of the revitalization of the Old Mill in Nysa, a building that has not been used for years. The investment will be completed in 2021. The building will combine office, recreational and residential functions – there will be service and catering premises on the ground floor , a conference room, and apartments on the upper floors.
After revitalization, the main attraction of this place will be a fountain symbolically reproducing the course of the river driving the mill wheel. It will stand on the town square in front of the Old Mill. A parking lot for nearly fifty spaces has been planned next to it, which will be available to the residents of Nysa.
Super foam from Bioagra
Bioagra transferred a specialized extinguishing agent worth about PLN 50,000 to Nysa fire brigade. It is a Formula 1 car in its field – indicates the company. It is used to extinguish solids and liquids, e.g. gasoline, petroleum, alcohol, and even jet fuel.
The extinguishing agent passed by Bioagra is highly specialized. It is used to produce an aqueous solution from which various types of foam can be obtained. It will last for plenty extinguishing actions.
– The agent should be enough for a long time, because it is most often used to extinguish small fires – says Marcin Skalny, junior foreman from KP PSP in Nysa. – Last year, such fires accounted for 93% of all fires in our county. – The extinguishing agent can be successfully used for various types of extinguishing operations, including protection of spilled flammable liquids, e.g. car fuels in actions on roads or railways.
The agent provided by Bioagra is widely used. It can be used simultaneously with extinguishing powder mixed with foam and other extinguishing foams. Due to its unique properties, it is very useful when extinguishing liquid fires, which destroy extinguishing foam produced from other universal foaming agents. It can be used to make foam in combination with tap water, industrial water and even sea water.
Mr. Corn shines and heats
For several days now, drivers on Nysa’s bypass can admire the New Year’s illumination of Bioagra. In the building from which Mr. Corn is waving to us, the so-called cogeneration is in operation. This is a very efficient and ecological way of generating electricity and heat.
Last year, a ten storey-tall Mr. Corn ran around the grain elevator tower. This year, it appeared on a cogeneration building, in which electricity and useful heat are generated for the needs of the plant.
Cogeneration is an extremely economical and ecological way of generating energy. In a classic solution, electricity and heat are generated separately at the power plant and heating plant. Cogeneration involves producing both of these types of energy in the same process. This allows you to achieve 30% higher efficiency. This translates into significant economic and environmental benefits.
The “Goświnowice” Ethanol Plant is in many respects one of the most ecological and modern industrial complexes in Poland. In the case of cogeneration, Bioagra paves the way in a direction that the European Commission strongly promotes. In the first half of 2019, it approved public aid in the amount of 5 billion euros. It will be intended to develop electricity production in cogeneration.
