In the United States (US), a consortium consisting of AVAPCO, BYOGY Renewables, and Petron Scientech has announced a partnership to demonstrate technologies in the Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts with AVAP (ABBA) Integrated Biorefinery project. To be built at the AVAPCO Thomaston, Georgia (GA) research site, the ABBA Integrated Biorefinery project aims to co-produce biojet fuel and "Bioplus" nanocellulose.
The project has received a Phase 1, US$3.7 million award from the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the project has begun. The ABBA project will co-produce full replacement renewable jet fuel, gasoline, diesel, and Bioplus nanocellulose from woody biomass in an integrated biorefinery at AVAPCO’s site in Thomaston, Georgia (GA).
AVAPCO’s proprietary American Value Added Pulping (AVAP) technology co-produces cellulose (pulp) and ethanol from biomass in an integrated biorefinery application.
