Taking advantage of its own technology, CIMV is closely working with a market leader on the engineering of its first lignocellulosic biorefinery model.
This future industrial unit will be built in a specific location, close to biomass resources and will work in close collaboration with local feedstocks suppliers.
The implementation of such a unit will lead to local jobs creation and secure additional revenues for local resources handlers.
From lignocellulosic biomass, the industrial unit will produce:
- Cellulose pulp for paper making, 2G ethanol or 2G bioethanol or more globally chemical intermediates.
- Biolignin™ for the green chemistry (wood panels adhesives, etc.).
- C5 sugars syrup, used as tanning agents for animal feed or as chemical intermediate for tomorrow’s chemistry.
- Silica, used as reinforcing agent in the rubber industry or plastics
