UBC Video-Conference

Bob Ingratta

Jan. 13, 2009


Discussion Items

  • Lignocellulose Short Term Actions from Executive Summary Paper

  • Input on Actions & Priorities

  • What is Right, Wrong, Missing?

  • Identify Technology gaps; Factors to stimulate growth; Priority Co-Products


Examples of Platform Chemicals and their Derivatives


Lignocellulose based Ethanol and Chemicals Key Strategic Issues

Key Strategic Issue Platforms to address:

  • Feedstock (BioMass) availability – access, economical and predictable supply.

  • BioConversion and BioRefinery efficiencies – unlock the energy both pre-treatment and catalysis.

  • Market Receptors – create demand and enable infrastructure distribution.


Lignocellulose based Ethanol and Chemicals Proposed Short-term Actions for Discussion

Feedstock (BioMass) Strategic Platform:

  • Develop analytical tools for characterizing composition of biomass and intermediate co-products –Do we need an incubator lab system?

  • Cost-efficient systems for transport or on-site processing. – Portable plant and concentrate energy

  • Identify high value co-products & systems for integrated biorefinery to offset feedstock costs


Lignocellulose based Ethanol and Chemicals Proposed Short-term Actions for Discussion

BioConversion Strategic Platform:

  • Optimize enzyme technology for hydrolysis.

  • Pre-treatment/separation technologies

  • BioRefinery systems to obtain high value streams.

  • C5 fermentation technology improvements.

  • Pulp Mill Extension –shared learnings systems.

  • Enable Capacity by funding technology scale-up and pilot plant tests.

  • Define Priority co-products value targets & roadmap of potential uses.


Lignocellulose based Ethanol and Chemicals Proposed Short-term Actions for Discussion

Market Receptor Strategic Platform:

  • Identify and Enable Compatibility of bio-based chemicals within existing commercial processes.

  • Develop eco-clusters with networking services.

  • Incentives for infrastructure development. Energy Crop conversion; BioFleet program; Co-Product Use

  • Policy needs to enable Canada competitiveness & Risk mitigation for investment confidence


Summary of Short Term Actions

  • Beginning of a New Path to Success

  • Let’s Discuss & Define Actions that will meet your needs.

  • Goal is to help SMEs innovate & grow

  • We believe this is a Process for Support and not just a single meeting.
