Simple, integrated cellulosic ethanol production technology

The chemicals and transportation fuel sectors are facing multiple challenges: reducing their dependence on petroleum resources with cost competitive solutions and addressing today’s environmental concerns – sustainability and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Futurol™ technology addresses these challenges through the production of 2nd generation (2G) bio-ethanol from various biomasses suitable for fuel and chemical applications alike.


Futurol™ Background

Futurol™ technology has been developed since 2008 by a consortium of 4 R&D partners (IFP Energies nouvelles, INRA, Lesaffre and
ARD), backed by seven industrial and financial partners. Their expertise covers the whole production chain, from biomass cultivation and
transformation - through biocatalyst development and selection - to the development and industrialization of fuels and petrochemical
production processes.
