Granbio secures unopposed confirmation on EU 2G ethanol patent

June 2, 2022 |

In Georgia, GranBio secured the unopposed confirmation of European Patent No. EP 3259360, originally granted on August 25, 2021. The European patent has been successfully validated by GranBio in 31 countries for patent protection: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Europe leads the global race for clean energy, being a strategic market that is transitioning away from fossil-fuel feedstocks and towards renewable feedstocks. The 31 patents cover the production of cellulosic ethanol (or another fermentation product) in these countries.

GranBio’s patented GP3+® technology converts non-food lignocellulosic biomass into low-carbon renewable biofuels. To license this technology worldwide, in 2020, GranBio announced a partnership with NextChem, a subsidiary of Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. in Italy, that operates in the field of energy-transition technologies. The strategic partnership has advanced the commercialization of cellulosic ethanol technology. The partnership combines GranBio’s technology and knowledge in second-generation (2G) biomass and biofuels with NextChem’s engineering intelligence as well as engineering, procurement, and construction capabilities, to offer integrated services, feasibility studies, integration projects, engineering and construction of manufacturing plants around the world.
