Chempolis formicobio™ technology is capable of processing bagasse, an important biomass residue of sugar production, into bioethanol profitably and without emissions into water and air. In addition to cellulosic ethanol, formicobio™ can convert biomass simultaneously to valuable biochemicals and produce surplus bioenergy.
Sugar industry is a major biomass owner and user in Southeast Asian countries. Currently, sugar industry can seek for value-added products by processing eg. molasses into bioethanol. However, a huge and under-utilized biomass potential remains in bagasse residues.
Use of renewable residual biomass results in low carbon footprint
Increased energy consumption, related CO2 emissions and increase of climate temperature are faced worldwide. Recently, production of biofuels from food crops has caused rise in food price. Moreover, production of biofuels from food crops does not mitigate climate change as the whole production cycle is both energy-inefficient and energy-intensive.
