IBN-One awards FEED for the first bio-isobutene biorefinery to Technip and IPSB

A very short post to report a new contract award that has been announced by Global Bioenergies few hours ago (see press release). Following a consultation process carried out in spring 2016, IBN-One (a subsidiary of Global Bioenergies and Cristal Union) has awarded the initial engineering work contract for its bio-isobutene plant to a consortium that includes Technip and IPSB.

This first front-end engineering design (FEED) phase will run for 12 months and precedes the detailed engineering studies for the plant’s construction. IPSB will be responsible for the engineering of the plant’s upstream segment, dedicated to the intake of the raw material from the neighboring sugar mill and its conversion into bio-isobutene by a process of fermentation. Technip will manage the project and conduct the studies for the downstream part of the process, namely the purification of bio-isobutene. Also during this period, the engineers will specify the design of the equipment and the connections between the plant’s different subunits, as well as its integration at a Cristal Union sugar beet site (the final location has not been unveiled yet). The contracts for the second phase, comprising the detailed engineering studies, will be awarded at a later date. Construction is then expected to commence early in 2018.
