In the biomass segment ENC Energy is
using biological aerobe and anaerobe processes (digestion
and fermentation) to produce bio-ethanol, liquid CO2, bio-gas,
electricity and heat. In this we work closely together with
industrial partners, research centres and universities.
Together with our partners, we actively developing new technologies
for the conversion of biomass (waste as well as energy crop)
into bio-ethanol and bio-methanol.
One of these technologies is the lingo cellulose conversion.
Here we focus on broadening the usable resources of feed
material for our production processes, which will enable
us to replace food (wheat, corn, beets e.g.) by agricultural
biomass waste (straw e.g.) and man grown energy crop such
as elephant grass.
We continuously work on efficiency improvement of biomass
to biogas conversions, as well as on the conversion of bio-gas
into electricity and heat.
Which will results in lower requirement of biomass input.
At the same time we develop and improve operational systems
for the separation and recuperation of minerals out of the
various downstreams, resulting in the availability of reclaimed
concentrated minerals (raw material for chemical and process
industry). It also results in wider application options
for the downstream biomass.
More information about our bio-energy approach and bio-energy
systems can be found on our dedicated website.
