AC3B Technologies Ltd., Quebec, Canada
The technology aims at producing fuels (gasoline and diesel additive), chemicals and petrochemicals (BTX aromatics, light olefins i.e. ethylene, propylene and butenes, and LPG-grade paraffins)from ligno-cellulosic biomass, particularly forest/agricultural residues, perennial grasses, cellulosic wastes. Basically,it consists of two catalytic steps. This is a green, sustainable, performing and quite simple technology.
Primary Application Area: Automotive & Transportation
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: New technology that does not have constraints as in the conventional ligno-cellulosic biomass hydrolysis/production of sugars/fermentation to alcohols (ethanol or butanols), or the technologically heavy Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (for producing hydrocarbons or alcohols.
