Compared to other available technologies, Chempolis’ formico® technologies offer an opportunity for profitable and environmentally sustainable biorefining. Driving forces for the production of cellulosic ethanol include reduction of CO2 emissions of transportation, decline of oil resources, and securing sourcing of transportation fuels.
Production of wood pulp consumes forest resources and transportation of papermaking fibers across the globe causes CO2 emissions. On the other hand, current production of non-wood pulp consumes huge volumes of groundwater, pollutes waterways severely, and causes CO2 emissions.
Chempolis’ formico® technologies enable higher revenues and reduced operating costs while CO2 emissions and other pollution to atmosphere and waterways can be eliminated practically completely. Simultaneously, local biorefining provides jobs and incomes to rural areas that are typically under-developed in Asian countries resulting in integration of social, environmental and economic sustainability.
