ZeaChem has progressed from bench-scale testing to a full demonstration facility for the production of chemicals and ethanol from renewable, sustainable feedstocks. ANDRITZ pretreatment technologies were selected to provide the front-end for ZeaChem’s process. We visited the demo facility in Oregon (USA) and walked the ground where the commercial facility will be sited.
The final rule making regarding required volumes is expected by November 30th, 2015.
2014 & 2015 Proposed volumes by June 1st, finalized volumes by November 30th, 2015
