|Global Bioenergies' bio-reactor|
Global Bioenergies is now scaling up its 42-liter laboratory pilot production of isobutene to a 500-liter fermenter, which represents a yearly production capacity of 10 tons. The industrial pilot facility will be installed in Bazancourt-Pomacle biorefinery near ARD's agro-industrial complex. The facility will also include a purification unit installed downstream of the fermenter which will allow the production of intermediate-purity isobutene batches. The isobutene will then be transferred to Arkema for its own research.
