The key success factor in turning non-food biomass into useful end products is the cost of sugar. Specifically, low cost glucose. Once a low cost form of cellulosic sugar is available, such as that from Comet's Cellulosic Sugar process, any of a number of end products can be manufactured.
Comet Biorefining has developed a novel process to convert cellulosic biomass into high-quality cost competitive cellulosic glucose. This enabling and ground breaking technology allows biofuels and bioproducts manufacturers to have a reliable and consistent source of cellulose-based glucose that can be directly converted to value-added end products including plastics, resins, plasticizers, polyurethanes and lubricants.
