Untethering from the wet mill. Filling the gap of low cost carbohydrate feedstocks, connecting ethanol producers to bio-chemical producers, and end users.
The chemicals industry is quickly changing. The market growth and interest in renewable chemicals is significant. Major players and start-ups alike are positioning to lead the charge to greener, cleaner, renewable enhanced chemicals to supply the world demand. The technologies to produce these chemicals have improved significantly in recent years and commercial production of renewable base and secondary chemicals has begun. This supersession looks at the growing market for these chemicals, various production processes, and feedstock/production options. Special attention will be paid to the opportunity for corn-based ethanol facilities to produce a carbohydrate feedstock for production of renewable chemicals. The bolt-on opportunity for ethanol facilities at local locations around the Midwest USA and world to produce feedstocks and co-produce renewable chemicals is vast. Bridging this gap provides an opportunity for the ethanol industry to diversify while providing low-cost carbohydrate feedstocks to enable economical renewable chemical production.
