Bio-Refining

 

Integrated Bio-Refineries are serving a niche and rapidly growing market for bio-chemicals and bio-plastics. At G.I. Dynamics we want to expand the added value of ethanol/biomass use and via our technologies to convert it further to other added value products for the industry:

Bio Refinery Concept

Key Success Factors

 

1. Proven Technology with reference plants - 

The technologies combine best practice and use state of the art catalyst reaching the highest conversion and the highest selectivity of the main products.

 

2. Market Price conform -

Using best performances and full integration, bio-chemical resulted in the process chain have a market conform price. Depending on the region the bio-chemicals prices are highly competitive with the petroleum ones.

 

3. Multiple bio-products -

The integrated technologies generate added value for multiple industries like cosmetics, pharmaceutical, textiles, etc. which are using bio-ethylene, bio-EO and bio-MEG.

 

4. Integration -

Best performances of the technology are a consequence of high level of integration from energy perspective.

 

5. Flexible Model -

Depending on the variation of the market bio-EO/MEG plants can accommodate a change in the capacity and to align with the price changes in the market.

 

6. Minimize carbon footprint -

Extensive research showed that ethanol based bio-ethylene production reduce the carbon footprint supporting the environmental and sustainability endeavors of many companies.

 

7. Saleable CO2 -

We approach the business from a zero discharge philosophy. The CO2 is recovered as food grade and can be used further e.g. beverages.
