What’s up with cellulosic fuels in Brazil?: The Digest’s 8-Slide Guide to GranBio

October 13, 2015 |

GranBio is a Brazilian biotech company that creates solutions to transform biomass into renewable products such as biofuels, biochemicals, nano materials and nutrients. With its innovative business model, the company is the only one in the sector to be active from start to finish in the chain of production – from raw material to distribution of the final product – integrating its own and third-party technologies.

Created in June of 2011 by Bernardo Gradin, GranBio operates the Southern Hemisphere’s first commercial-scale plant for second-generation ethanol, an unprecedented project in Brazilian industry. The factory – called Bioflex 1 – has been operational since September of 2014, in Alagoas. The production of biofuel from sugarcane straw and bagasse, the raw material that until then had been discarded or burned in the field, places the company among the planet’s most sustainable, in its sector.
