Global Bioenergies scales up its C3 process in the BPF

Type of post: FLASH NEWS.

Global Bioenergies have just reached a new milestone in scaling-up its C3 process converting renewable resources into isopropanol and acetone. At the end of 2017, ARD carried out the first stage (see more information here: “Global Bioenergies starts scale-up of a process to transform renewable resources into acetone and isopropanol”, 12/12/2017). The next phase (demo scale: several cubic meters, it represents a further 20-fold increase) has been subcontracted to the Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF). The trials, which have been successfully performed, pave the way towards a first commercial plant. The company is already engaged in concrete discussions with major international industrialists to partner on the commercial deployment of the process.
