Cellulosic sugar daddy: The Digest’s 2016 Multi-Slide Guide to Comet Biorefining

July 4, 2016 |

In April, we reported that Comet Biorefining has signed an off-take agreement with bio-succinic acid producer BioAmber for cellulosic dextrose from Comet’s upcoming first commercial plant in Sarnia, Ontario.  The dextrose will be produced from agricultural residues using Comet’s innovative technology.

The agreement also provided increasing shape to the development of an biobased industrial cluster in the Sarnia region of Ontario — a corn-growing region where farmers will provide agricultural residues  which will be processed into industrial-grade cellulosic dextrose by Comet. In turn, BioAmber will be the offtake partner for those sugars, and use its own proprietary technology to produce biobased succinic acid and high-value derivative chemicals including 1,4-butanediol (BDO) and tetrahydrofuran (THF).

At ABLC Feedstocks, Comet chairman Andrew Richard gave this overview of Comet’s tech and progress.
