Renewable Fuel from Wood and Grass
Our society relies to a large extent on a high use of fossil energy, energy that is not renewable. As such, our energy use cannot be called sustainable. Renewable energy can be used to improve the sustainability of our energy use.
The Biosulfurol Process
Biosulfurol Energy is aiming to produce renewable fuel by using a newly applied, efficient, lower cost and environmentally friendly production process. The Biosulfurol process uses non-food biomass, for instance woodchips, forest waste, switch-grass or other green waste and produces ethanol and lignin at highly competitive prices due to the lower costs involved in the process.
The Biosulfurol process is an efficient and clean second generation production process developed by our technology partners and licensed exclusively to Biosulfurol Energy.
An integral part of the cell walls of plants is lignin which is seperated by the Biosulfurol Process in a relatively pure form. Its energy content is comparable to fossil coal and can be used as fuel for power generation alongside with and as substitute for fossil coal. Lignin is one of the most abundant organic polymers on earth, employing 30% of non-fossil organic carbon. It will become the renewable supplies for electricity production.
Bioethanol, a liquid biofuel that can be used as a blend with petrol and is more environmentally friendly. As a 5% blend, it can be used in all petrol engines. However, higher blends, like E85, require some modifications to engines. It is a direct substitute for petrol in cars.
It is a biofuel produced not in competition with food crops, nor does it require additional land.
