BioGasol sells first Carbofrac unit to Sweetwater Energy

January 10, 2013 |

In Denmark, BioGasol announced the completion of the first sale of its Carbofrac 400 pretreatment reactor to Sweetwater Energy. The Rochester, NY-based cellulosic sugar producer will use the reactor, designed to treat lignocellulosic feedstock before fermentation, as part of a decentralised sugar manufacturing unit for use by Ace Ethanol, a Stanley, WI-based corn ethanol producer. The combined unit will generate fermentable sugars for cellulosic ethanol at Ace’s plant for up to 16 years.

The Carbofrac 400 reactor is the mid-range model in BioGasol’s product line-up and, as part of Sweetwater’s production line, it enables the conversion of lignocellulosic feedstock to highly fermentable sugars suitable for producing bioethanol, bioplastics and biochemicals. Financial terms were not disclosed.
