Davy Process Technology, SEKAB ink cellulosic biofuels marketing pact

March 13, 2013 |

Davy Process Technology and SEKAB announced at World Biofuels Markets that they are embarking on a collaboration to develop and market CelluTech, SEKAB’s lignocellulosic based biorefinery technology.

The technologies that constitute CelluTech were developed by SEKAB E-Technology in collaboration with Swedish universities. International experts have rated the CelluTechTM process among the most advanced methods to treat lignocellulosic biomass in the world. SEKAB and Davy will combine their expertise to drive the technology forward to meet the growing demand for advanced biorefining technologies to produce sustainable lignocellulosic sugars, ethanol and other green chemicals.

The technology platform, which is at the core of the collaboration, consists of several steps, including thermochemical pretreatment, enzymatic hydrolysis to initially produce sugars, for the onward production of ethanol by fermentation and other products from lignocellulosic materials. The platform is flexible and can be adapted to a variety of raw materials such as wood, straw, corn residues and bagasse.
