Clariant successfully concludes testing of energy crop miscanthus at Straubing plant for GRACE project

Clariant announced today that it has conducted tests on approximately 30 tons of miscanthus provided by INA, Croatia’s leading oil and gas company. The miscanthus biomass was harvested and baled at the INA demonstration site in Croatia in February this year and shipped for processing to Clariant’s pre-commercial sunliquid plant in Straubing, Germany for conversion into lignocellulosic sugars and ethanol. INA is a consortium member of the publicly funded project GRACE.

Final results prove that the sunliquid® technology can successfully convert miscanthus biomass into lignocellulosic sugars and ethanol at its pre-commercial scale facility bases in Straubing, Germany, confirming benefits of the sugar process platform.
