Clariant achieves a further milestone in the manufacture of second-generation bioethanol

Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, is demonstrating the international potential of its process for manufacturing sustainable biofuel through the expansion of sunliquid® technology to further agricultural residues. Following the opening of Germany’s largest demonstration plant for manufacturing ethanol from agricultural residues in July 2012, the company now has new findings, which show that corn stover, the most valuable raw material in North America, and sugarcane bagasse, a cellulose-rich by-product of sugar and ethanol production in Latin America and Asia, can also be converted efficiently in the process.
