June 6, 2013 |

In Switzerland, Clariant is engaged in discussions with unnamed parties to become partners for an ethanol plant that will utilize its Sunliquid enzyme technology. In an interview with Bloomberg, Clariant’s Biofuels and Derivatives head, Mark Rarbach is quoted as stating, “We are in close and advanced discussions with partners about commercialization of the technology.” Rarbach was working on the Sunliquid technology at Sued-Chemie, and continued after the 2011 acquistion of Sued by Clariant. The technology converts agricultural waste to produce ethanol. The article describes the plant being discussed as having an annual capacity as high as 150,000 tons.
