The unique µ-BioRefinery™ IP consist of proven, scaled-down biomass processing technologies and a smart value-chain integration. This results in a 30% margin over the current best practices. It turns conventional sucrose based crops into bio-renewable chemicals and green electricity.
State of the art agricultural practices will result in improved yields and the introduction of the off-season crops. Green cane harvesting will replaces the traditional open burning of biomass.
The biorefinery will be located on 2,000 ha of purchase prime sugar cane land and is 3 hours from the Port of Cortes one of the largest shipping ports in Central America.

Green Chemicals


( Furfural is an important chemical feedstock and solvent to the specialty chemical industry for the production of polymers and chemicals used in the automotive, construction, agriculture and pharmaceutical industries.

Ethanol: Chemical Feedstock or Fuel (additive)

We think of ethanol as a "beyond fuel" product. Whilst in the short-term there are off-takers from the global fuels industry, our medium to long term markets will be its use for other energy products and for green chemicals. Currently, the largest single use of ethanol is as a motor fuel or as a fuel additive.
