Full biomass utilization feedstock flexibility

Full Biomass Utilization& Feedstock Flexibility

Integrated biorefinery process concept maximizes the utilization of the biomass resource (i.e., converting the biomass available into a number of high energy products). We call it the:

”THE CARBON SLAUGHTERHOUSE ”

Wheat Straw

Grape Pommace

Corn Stover

Hop Wastes

Paper and Food Waste

Yard Wastes

The Integrated Biorefinery concept can usemany different types of biomass materials

Centralization of Upgrading (Hub) Allows

Fuel Upgrading Near High Demand Centers

High Value Products

Decentralization of Processing Spokes Allows

Deployment Regionwide Near Biomass Sources
