Cellulosic Ethanol, are all processes equal?: The Digest’s 2016 Multi-Slide Guide to Clariant

April 20, 2016 |

Clariant’s sunliquid technology for the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass into sugars, followed by fermentation to cellulosic ethanol, is flexible to be used to convert different feedstocks on a regional basis, for example corn stover in North America, bagasse in South America or wheat straw in Europe and can be adapted to various plant concepts.

The production cost can compete with those of first-generation bioethanol and the greenhouse gas savings of the sunliquid ethanol are up to 95% compared to fossil fuels. In addition, sunliquid paves the way to a second generation sugar platform for the production of biobased chemicals.

Clariant’s Martin Mitchell presented this slide deck last week as part of the March Madness webinar series. You can see the complete webinar, “Ethanol from Conventional to Advanced” here.
