Disruptive cellulosic ethanol production technology unveiled by Renmatix [Registered]

Biochemical, thermochemical and the hybrid of the two processing systems have informed the cellulosic biofuels production technology to date. A US company Renmatix has come up with disruptive pretreatment technology that is claimed to be not only faster in releasing sugars than the mentioned technologies, but also uses no significant consumables like enzymes or acids. The proprietary PlantroseTM Process is biomass agnostic. Chopped lignocellulosic feedstock is introduced into a hydrothermal reactor. The process consists of two core steps. The first is fractionation of biomass and separation of the remaining solids which contain cellulose and lignin. The second is supercritical cellulose…
