Located in India, this Commercial Demo plant will probably be one-of-its-kind in the northern hemisphere. Production of Ethanol from Ligno-cellulosic biomass comprises of three steps :-


Pretreatment:

(Alteration of structural and chemical composition of biomass to facilitate hydrolysis)


Hydrolysis:

(Conversion of polysaccharides to monomeric fermentable sugars)


Fermentation:

(Fermentation of sugars into ethanol by microbes)


Cellulosic Ethanol : Technology Strengths

Proprietary C5 Mutant Micro-organism
