INEOS Bio produces renewable power, uses BioEnergy technology

VERO BEACH, US: INEOS New Planet BioEnergy (INPB), joint-venture project of INEOS Bio, is producing renewable power using INEOS Bio’s feedstock flexible BioEnergy technology. The facility is producing renewable power for the facility and for export to the local community. At full production, the Centre is expected to produce 8 million gallons of advanced cellulosic bioethanol and six megawatts of renewable power using renewable biomass including yard, vegetative, and agricultural wastes.

The Centre is the first large-scale project in the United States to receive registrations from the EPA for a facility using non-food vegetative waste materials (vegetative and yard waste) to produce cellulosic ethanol. Construction on the Centre was completed in June 2012, and production of advanced cellulosic bioethanol is scheduled to begin in the 4th Quarter. INEOS Bio has plans to run municipal solid waste at the Centre after the initial start-up.

“The production of renewable power is a significant benefit of our technology. The power generated improves the energy efficiency and greenhouse gas savings of the facility while contributing to the base load of renewable electricity for the local community. We look forward to rapidly rolling out this technology globally to provide the benefits of bioethanol and renewable power from waste to local communities,” said Peter Williams, CEO INEOS Bio.
