Enabling scalable and low-cost conversion of cellulosic biomass

We are currently developing bench-scale process design criteria across a variety of feedstock.
Optimized for a recycling process, CHIPs may be re-used for long periods of time, in batch reactors, and in continuous reactor designs.
High temperature processing:
Aqueous solution process temperatures of 120C+ provide for an aseptic glucose stream going into fermentation, and decrease cooling required after steam explosion.
Elimination of Dilute Acid pretreatment:
Steam explosion processes with NO dilute acid, nor alkaline pretreatment will allow for lower capital and operating costs.
Storage and handling:
Manufacturing, shipping, and handling logistics can be greatly reduced as CHIPs can be transported as dry goods.
