Zeachem looks at bio-propanol

Look at what I found! I have always been asking Zeachem what specific C3 chemicals they are looking into and now I have my (sort-of) answers from this slide presentation that Zeachem's chief commercial officer Bob Walsh recently presented at BIO's Pacific Rim industrial biotechnology and bioenergy summit.

In this presentation, Zeachem points to development of its C3 platform that includes propionic acid, ethyl propionate and propanol. These chemical building blocks can lead to the production of bio-based propylene. The blog previously posted recent activities on this market.

Of course Zeachem is already producing its C2s -- acetic acid and ethyl acetate at the company's 250,000 gal/year demo facility in Boardman, Oregon.
