Injecting New Life into Cellulosic Ethanol Production

Project description

New prospects for ethanol production

For decades, experts have been seeking ways to wean industries off fossil fuels, trying to rebuild cities with greener modes of transportation. Ethanol offers a suitable alternative but the economic feasibility of its production has been a challenge for the industry. The EU-funded NewLiEP project is introducing a novel fermentation process that provides superior productivity with lower operational and capital expenses. This approach will be demonstrated in near-industrial scale. It has the potential to become the primary fermentation technology used in fuel ethanol plants, meeting the growing demand for more sustainable fuels, and supporting broader bids to reach the EU environmental targets in emission reduction.
