December 5, 2011 |

In Minnesota, Butamax Advanced Biofuels announces that Highwater Ethanol, will be its first entrant to the Butamax Early Adopters Group. The ICM-designed facility was constructed by Fagen with a nameplate capacity of 50 mgpy. Butamax’s business model is to offer current ethanol producers proprietary biobutanol technology to permit improved biofuels growth and plant profitability.

Last November Butamax announced the addition of a technology laboratory in Paulinia, Brazil to accelerate process development efforts for producing biobutanol from sugarcane.  In addition, the Butamax technology demonstration facility in Hull, England is producing biobutanol to support design of commercial facilities.
