Process Technologies for Extracting Value
from Biomass and Agribusiness by-products
Demand for renewable chemicals and fuels are driving demand for maximizing value of by-products. For example, glucose derived from low-value biomass residue poses a potent potential solution for meeting this demand…though no technology has been available to quickly and cost-effectively convert agricultural residues, by-products and advanced engineered micro-organisms into fuel or chemical building blocks.
Inventure Renewables has pioneered a number of proven process technologies for direct conversion of biomass residues and agribusiness by-products to chemicals, materials and fuels. Thanks to Inventure, low-value residues like cane bagasse, rice straw, corn stover, corn cobs and palm fiber – worth as little as $40/ton – can be inexpensively transformed into a mixture of materials valued at as much as $1,100/ton.
