Greenbelt and Biofuels & Energy collaborate for bioethanol project

March 23, 2018 |

In California, Greenbelt Resources Corporation in collaboration with Biofuels & Energy, LLC created the San Luis Valley Bioproducts Project, known as SLV Biopro. The project will feature Greenbelt’s waste-to-energy interconnected system (ECOsystem) designed to produce up to a half a million gallons of bioethanol from an abundance of waste feedstocks available in the San Luis Valley area of Colorado. SLV Biopro will be devised to provide a viable solution to potato processing industry waste.

The ECOsystem model can be custom-designed to transform appropriate feedstocks of any local area into bioethanol and bioproducts. SLV Biopro plans to be the first independently owned, local-scale bioethanol solution in Colorado and will be tailored to utilize the local supply of potato processing industry wastes in the San Luis Valley region. Within this area, which includes Alamosa and Conejos counties, 55,000 acres are cultivated for potato crops. The resulting bioethanol will be sold for both fuel and industrial uses, including by Colorado’s cannabis processing industry as a “green” extraction solvent.
