Date: 2021-09-03
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida-based Blue Biofuels, Inc. is reporting Dr. Travis Baughman, Ph.D., has joined to company to lead the development of biodegradable bioplastics and nanocellulose from the company's patented Cellulose-to-Sugar (CTS) technology system.

CTS technology is a near zero carbon footprint system that can convert virtually any plant material -- grasses, wood, paper, farm waste, yard waste, forestry products, fruit casings, nut shells, and the cellulosic portion of municipal solid waste -- into sugars and lignin which are processed into biofuels. Lignin may be further converted into bioplastics. The CTS process is an independently-developed patented and proprietary technology that is fully owned by the Company. The company believes that bio-fuel originating from the Company's CTS process will be eligible to receive EPA D3 cellulosic Renewable Fuel Credits (RINs) of roughly $3 per gallon of ethanol in addition to the market price of ethanol. This incentive is offered to all domestic cellulosic transportation fuel producers.

Braskem Commits to Carbon Neutrality by 2050 (Ind. Report)
Braskem
Date: 2020-12-07
Polyolefins and biopolymers producer Braskem reports that under its 2009 long-term climate change and sustainability goals for 2020 the company aims to provide solutions that address climate change and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Under the plan, Braskem has invested in the development of I'm green ™ products sourced from renewable sources and recycled content, while in the same period reducing the intensity of carbon emissions from its operations by 20 pct. In 2018, Braskem further committed to 100 pct of plastic packaging being reused, recycled, or recovered by 2040. Braskem further committed to:

  • expand its I'm green ™ portfolio to include sales of 300,000 tons of recycled content products per year by 2025;

  • continue to expand the I'm green ™ portfolio to include sales of 1 million tpy of recycled content products by 2030;

  • work to divert 1.5 million tons of plastic waste away from incineration, landfill, or the environment by 2030;

  • deliver a 15 pct reduction in carbon emissions from Braskem operations by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality for Braskem's global operations by 2050.

    Braskem's I'm green™ brand was born in 2010 together with the world's first bioplastic (green polyethylene (PE)) produced on an industrial scale, using responsibly sourced sugarcane as raw material. Cultivation of sugarcane utilized in the production of I'm green ™ polyethylene captures CO2 and releases oxygen which means Braskem's bioplastic has a negative carbon footprint. From a cradle-to-gate life-cycle perspective, every ton of I'm green ™ Polyethylene produced equates to 3.09 tons of CO2 captured from the atmosphere, helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    Braskem's carbon neutrality strategy focuses on reducing emissions, offsetting emissions, capturing emissions, improving energy efficiency and increased use of low carbon and renewable energy in current operations. Additionally, Braskem will continue to explore and invest in new low carbon intensity process technologies.

    Attis Industries Launches Bio-Based Technologies Video (Ind. Report)
    Attis Industries
    Date: 2018-11-07
    Milton, Georgia-based Attis Industries, Inc. is reporting the launch of a video series on the technologies and bio-based products offered under the company's Innovations division. The video discusses the current inefficiencies in biomass processing and how the Company is taking the next steps to double the biofuel output from biomass.

    The transcript of the video states in part: "Our [processing] outputs include pulp and a unique form of high purity lignin. While the pulp can be used in traditional pulp and paper markets or to produce cellulosic ethanol, it's this high purity form of lignin that allows Attis to substantially increase the value and products made from biomass. For every 1.0 pound of cellulosic ethanol produced, Attis is able to recover about 1.3 pounds of high purity lignin. This is an alarming amount of highly concentrated carbon, captured from carbon dioxide and stored by photsyntheisis in plants, that has been overlooked for decades. Attis plans to convert its lignin into transportation fuels such as gasoline, diesel and/or jet fuel which could double the fuel output of biomass, or to convert the lignin into various materials such as plastics, adhesives or carbon fiber."
