news item image
Vogelbusch Biocommodities is acknowledged worldwide for proprietary technologies and tailor-made plant designs for the bio-based industries and offers solutions for a range of fermentation processes, including technologies and equipment for the production of yeast, organic acids, bioethanol as well as potable alcohol.
Bioethanol is a sustainable and renewable source of energy, produced from sugar or starch containing crops or lignocellulosic materials and plays an essential role in the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Lignocellulose processing plants offer the possibility to produce bioethanol by using energy crops or green waste but the economic benefit of grain or sugar based plants often outweigh until today.
In its alcohol division, Vogelbusch Biocommodities focuses on the production of ethanol from starch crops (wheat, corn, etc), molasses and sugar syrups or by‑products of the starch industry.
Process adaptations for novel raw materials (e.g. pea starch, a side product of pea protein production) are tested in our in‑house research facilities before they are implemented in industrial scale.
Analysis work and fermentation tests are...
