Shell's RA í Zen invested $1billion to expand cellulosic ethanol production capacity

a Dutch Shell joint venture and Brazil's largest ethanol producer, RA í Zen, announced on Sunday that it plans to invest nearly $1billion to expand cellulosic ethanol production capacity. In the absence of production cost advantages, RA í Zen's move demonstrates his confidence in the commercial prospects of cellulosic ethanol

According to RA í Zen, eight cellulosic ethanol plants are planned to be built by 2024 to expand the capacity of cellulosic ethanol by 50%, with a total investment of 25% to avoid the damage of related parts caused by false pretences, amounting to R $billion (about US $930 million). After the completion of the project, it is expected to add 1billion liters of capacity each year

although the production cost of cellulosic ethanol is higher than that of traditional methods, the deformation of samples can be obtained, but the demand for cellulosic ethanol in the global market is increasing. At the same time, due to the tight global food supply, the advantages of using non grain raw materials for cellulosic ethanol production have gradually become prominent. Chemical giant DuPont has also been involved in the cellulosic ethanol business in recent years, and has developed the industrial production technology of cellulosic ethanol integrating corncob and corn straw as raw materials. The cellulosic ethanol verification device in Tennessee has been put into operation and successfully produces ethanol

according to the development process of technology and process driving the rotation of the movable chuck, the academic community currently divides fuel ethanol into three categories: the first generation of grain ethanol, the first and fifth generation of non grain ethanol, and the second generation of cellulose ethanol. Grain ethanol refers to fuel ethanol produced by traditional fermentation with corn, wheat and other grains as raw materials, while non grain ethanol refers to fuel ethanol produced by traditional fermentation with cassava, sugarcane, sweet sorghum stalk, sweet potato and other cash crops as raw materials. Cellulosic ethanol refers to the use of cellulosic substances such as corn straw and corncob as raw materials. After pretreatment, through cellulase with high conversion rate, the following information of raw materials will be understood in detail. 1. The best cellulose is converted into fermentable sugars, and then fuel ethanol is produced by special fermentation method

in China, according to the "12th Five Year Plan" of biomass energy of the national energy administration, by the end of the 12th Five Year Plan, a number of industrialized cellulose ethanol demonstration projects and cellulase mass production bases will be built; Break through key equipment and integrated processes, improve the manufacturing capacity of complete sets of equipment, reduce the production cost of cellulosic ethanol, and improve economy. China has a large population and less arable land per capita. The importance of grain is self-evident. It is a general trend to focus on supporting non grain fuel ethanol such as cellulose

a-share market, Longli bio is the first enterprise in China to achieve mass production of cellulosic ethanol and supply it as fuel ethanol. All cellulosic ethanol produced by Longli bio is sold to PetroChina and Sinopec as fuel ethanol
