Biorenewable Insights: Ethanol as a Platform Chemical (2018 Program)

The purpose of this report is to analyze technologies available and commercial developments for technologies that ethanol to other value added chemical and fuel products.  Bio-renewable ethanol-to-chemical technologies are currently being developed for the production of bio-monomers, bio-polymers, biofuels, and chemical intermediates.  The purpose of this study is to assess the technical, commercial, and economic aspects of producing several different products from ethanol, including: ethylene (and derivatives), butadiene, isobutylene, butanol, and gasoline among other possible products.
