Cellulosic ethanol technology – formicobio™

formicobio™ represents the most sustainable technology for the production of non-food cellulosic bioethanol.

formicobio™ technology enables production of transportation fuel from agricultural residues both profitably and sustainably. A biorefinery based on formicobio™ technology meets the three key aspects of sustainability – environmental, economic, and social – and can convert residues into a range of products. Our unique formicobio™ technology can process a variety of non-food biomass generated as agricultural by-products, including wheat straw, corn stalks, reeds, bagasse, and residue from palm oil production.

formicobio™ is an energy self-sufficient, effluent-free, low-carbon third-generation (3G) biorefining technology that offers excellent profitability through its ability to convert residual raw materials into valuable products.

  • refines high purity Non-Food cellulosic fuel ethanol

  • effluent-free low carbon technology

    • no need for use of food

    • no smell and waste of sulfur

    • no fossil fuels need

  • new chemistry makes selective fractionation possible

    • overcomes the technical problems faced currently in industry

    • consumes less chemicals and generates its own energy

    • high conversion to ethanol with low enzyme use

    • biochemicals as byproduct
