Brazilalot: Heard on the Floor at World Biofuels Markets

Submitted by on March 25, 2011 – 7:55 amNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  …The hottest companies in bioenergy all know it – the name of the game is low-cost sugars, or affordable syngas that competes with natural gas. For those who don’t make or use syngas and need low-cost sugarcane: India’s short, Pakistan’s iffy, Australia’s underwater, Hawaii’s gone condo, the Philippines and Thailand are small, so you learn the samba and head for Brazil.

Hoping that somewhere, someone will come up with low-cost cellulosic sugars, in which case Brazil is still fine, fine, fine – there’s all that sugarcane bagasse.

As Dyadic CEO Mark Emalfarb put it, “It’s all about cheap cellulosic sugars, or its going to be Food vs Fuel part 2, and no one wants that.”

Project updates.

We heard from Sud-Chemie that their demonstration plant will completed this year. In their concept, process integrated enzyme production – that is, using a few percent of the carbon for enzyme production. …

Groundbreaking. Italy’s Chemtex will be breaking ground April 12 on a “small commercial” scale cellulosic ethanol plant that will produce 40,000 tonnes (12 million gallons) of cellulosic ethanol, fermenting both C5 and C6 sugars, from 180,000 tons of biomass.

Biogasol. Building a demonstration of its cellulosic ethanol technology, an 8X scale up from the pilot, based on processing 4 tons per hour of biomass, complete this year. …
