Cellulosic ethanol technology has been brewing for over a decade. With numerous commercial scale ethanol plants breaking ground, 2008 will be a turning point for the cellulosic bio-fuel industry.
PESCO-BEAM is ready to contribute to the growth of the cellulose bio-fuel industry with its design-build construction and engineering services. We are energized and equipped to build medium and large ethanol and other bio-fuel facilities. Optimally, we like to establish long-term business relationships with strategic partners.
You can maximize your business investment by collaborating with a company with 25+ years of global environmental engineering experience. PESCO-BEAM is implementing state-of-the-art technologies that allow business to be good for the environment as well as profitable.
Production of bio-fuels from ligno-cellulosic materials, using proprietary technology that PESCO-BEAM is involved with, means that every part of a plant including its stalks and leaves can be converted to ethanol or other bio-fuels.
Turning what is currently waste into ethanol and other bio-fuels is one of the most exciting next steps in the growth of the bio-fuel industry. With gasification technologies, thermal depolymerization, among other approaches, a wide variety of what are now considered waste streams can be converted to bio-fuels. Some of these waste streams include trash, or mixed municipal solid waste (MSW), which is typically over 70% cellulosic material, agricultural residues, and wood or pulp waste from lumber or paper industries.
Cellulosic ethanol can also be made directly from dedicated energy crops. Some energy crops, such as switchgrass and miscanthus, have a great potential to provide much of the country's fuel needs. These crops can easily produce ten or more tons of convertible biomass per acre! These dedicated energy crops can produce approximately three times the amount of ethanol per acre as compared to corn based ethanol. Utilizing these existing technologies will allow the world to drastically reduce our dependence on fossil oil for liquid fuels.
Bio-Fuel production, especially from cellulose, reduces GHG ( greenhouse gas) by replacing non-renewable petroleum based fuels, with a renewable fuel and a closed carbon loop. The closed carbon loop means that the growth of the plants or the biomass, used to produce the ethanol, takes in as much carbon, or GHG, from the atmosphere as the ethanol emits during its combustion.Cellulosic ethanol production not only has the potential to be carbon neutral, but can actually reduce carbon in the atmosphere due to the sequestration of carbon into the soil during the growth of the crop.
Cellulose energy crops can grow on marginal lands with minimal input. They do not utilize food crops and they help prevent soil erosion due to their perennial nature, maintaining a root structure throughout the year.
We hope that you are as excited about the emergence of commercial cellulosic ethanol as we are! Let's collaborate in establishing long-term synergistic business relationships that are in line with our mission of sustainability, your project needs, and profitable for all parties.
