Iogen’s cellulosic ethanol plant in Brazil comes online

December 17, 2014 |

In Canada, Iogen and Raizen announced they have begun production of cellulosic ethanol on schedule at Raizen’s newly expanded Costa Pinto sugar cane mill in Piracicaba, Sao Paulo, Brazil. Raizen broke ground on the $100 million “biomass-to-ethanol” expansion just over one year ago. The new facility will convert biomass such as sugar cane bagasse and straw into 40 million litres per year of advanced, second generation cellulosic biofuel.

It will also be the first large-scale commercial implementation of Iogen Energy’s cellulosic ethanol technology, which the company developed and has extensively proven in its Ottawa demonstration facility.
