Graham Rice, INEOS Bio
The INEOS Bio company and technology portfolio are described, discussing different pathways to bioethanol production (hydrolysis, gasification and fermentation) to produce syngas and ultimately bioethanol; using a range of feedstocks (sugar and starch crops, cellulose material, ligno-cellulose and other biomass). The conversion processes are shown, alongside potential end uses and a life cycle analysis showing climate impacts. Potential benefits of the process include reducing carbon emissions, contributing to energy security, whilst also making use of waste resources and creating skilled jobs and wealth, to support the emerging bio-economy.
