Is a world where sustainable, biologically derived, green chemicals, produced in harmony with planet earth replace our dependence on fossil fuel equivalents.
Is to re-establish, at a global scale, the Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process to transform locally sourced, low-value byproducts, residues and waste into high-value green chemicals used in everyday items.
We’re helping to drive the transition to a Net Zero, Nature Positive world.
is revived globally as Butanol fuelled car is driven 10,000 miles across the USA by biobutanol pioneer David Ramey
sets up the first centre for sustainable biofuel development in the UK – The Biofuel Research Centre – at Edinburgh Napier University.
Proof of Concept
research commences on Scottish Government funded programme to investigate ABE fermentation of whisky production residues
Signed a partnership agreement with Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) in Ghent to scale up the technology following a £1.2 million deal with private investors and grant funding from the UK government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change
First large scale butanol samples revealed – successfully scaled up process technology over 1,000-fold, taking it from the original lab-scale to viable commercial pilot-scale
Over £4 million in funding since company launch
