Softwood to Hydrolysate and Sugars Raw Softwood Milling Pretreatment
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
Catalytic Upgrading to Fuels Production of Specialty and Industrial Chemicals Spokes Hub Hub & Spoke Non-enzymatic Hydrolysate Platform • Biomass Feedstocks • Forest Residues • Crop Residues • Manures • Food Process Waste • Municipal Solid Waste • Grasses PRETREATMENT & BIO-PROCESSING PLATFORM MOLECULES Centralization of Upgrading (Hub) Allows Fuel Upgrading Near High Demand Centers High Value Products Decentralization of Processing Spokes Allows Deployment Regionwide Near Biomass Sources
