The RITE Bioprocess: The Digest’s 2016 8-Slide Guide to Green Earth Institute
by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest) Green Earth Institute Co., Ltd. is focused on producing carbon-neutral biofuels and green chemicals derived from non-food biomass, such as leaves and stems of plants, instead of using food and feed crops.
Using technology originally invented by RITE (Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth), we developed a bioprocess technology that enables more efficient production of low-cost green products from non-food biomass compared with conventional fermentation technologies. Green Earth Institute was established to commercialize this innovative bioprocess technology enabling it to address major challenges such as global warming by limiting greenhouse gas production from fossil fuels and minimizing diversion of food crops to fuels.
There are great expectations for the emerging “Biorefinery Industry”, as the source of biofuels and green chemicals from renewable biomass. Aiming to become a world-wide platform for the 21st century biorefinery industry, Green Earth Institute strives to realize a sustainable society through conserving the global environment, decreasing the use of fossil resources, and utilizing non-food biomass.
