Edeniq quietly emerges as an unlikely winner with its bolt-on cellulosic ethanol technology

May 29, 2018 | Case Study

Much of the attention on cellulosic ethanol was focused on large-scale greenfield facilities, but their slow ramp-up and well-publicized engineering issues have killed much of the hype they generated. However, an unlikely winner has emerged in the form of bolt-on cellulosic ethanol technologies, that is, small-scale systems that are attached to a first-generation ethanol facility and utilize the byproduct streams as feedstock. The current leader in the field, Edeniq, already deployed five such systems and, in 2017, was the second largest cellulosic ethanol producer despite operating systems several orders of magnitude smaller than its competitors.
