Generation 1.5: Grain Fiber to Cellulosic Ethanol Technology™

 

Enhanced Capabilities

• Gen 1.5 has been proven in both pilot (15,000 gallon) and production (585,000 gallonS) fermentors in runs up to 1000 hours 

•In many cases, ethanol produced by Gen 1.5 process can be made at a lower cost of production than the traditional Generation 1.0 starch-based ethanol process

•Collaboration with two world-leading  biotechnology companies, DSM and Novozymes

 

Benefits of Gen 1.5

•Additional 7-10% increase in cellulosic ethanol

•Additional 20% increase in oil recovery 

•No feedstock collection required – fiber handles far easier than agricultural residue

•Fully-integrated solution reduces costs – capex cost of $3-5 per gallon compared to $10-15 for cellulosic Generation 2.0

•Capture D3 RINs, cellulosic tax credits and California Low Carbon Fuel Standard Credits – may result in added value as high as $3.00 per gallon above corn ethanol prices

•Produces a high protein DDGs mix – may bring added value to animal feed

•Flexible rollout

•Patent-pending technology
