Cellulosic Ethanol

As the transportation fuel and chemical markets require urgent shifts to meet future demands while lowering average carbon intensity of fuels and products, the use of renewable & alternative feedstocks will play an important role in the game tomorrow.

Today, the main substitute to gasoline is first generation bio-ethanol produced from food crops (sugar beet, sugar cane or starchy crops such as corn, wheat...) via fermentation process.


Axens Offer

Novel route for bio-ethanol production aims to convert lignocellulosic biomass which refers to non-food feedstocks (forestry residues, energy crops) or non-edible parts of food crops (rice straw, wheat straw, corn stover, bagasse, etc.). Main product is cellulosic ethanol also known as second generation (2G) or advanced bio-ethanol. Many other products can be obtained from such process for fuel/energy and chemical applications alike.

Cellulosic ethanol is strongly promoted as one of the most promising solution for companies and governments to succeed in their transitions and achieve their climate targets as well as other sustainable development goals.
