The energy to power the plant is produced by the plant itself using co-generation.
Cellulosic Ethanol has 80% less energy input than output, unlike 1st generation Ethanol.
We use waste-based feedstocks only. This helps with waste management in our communities and does not negatively affect food security.
Cellulosic biomass waste not sugar/starch will become the feedstock of choice in the future, the amount of energy contained in the ethanol is significantly greater than the amount of energy used to make ethanol, even if the raw material used is corn (For the U.S).
Replace your dirty, expensive and dangerous fossil fuels with renewable, locally-produced energy with THE GREEN PLACE GE-Biofuels system.
What We Do
Green Energy & Biofuels has successfully launched one of the first commercial cellulosic ethanol operations in Africa. GEB will invest in waste-to- ethanol plants and will feed some of the largest and fastest growing renewable programmes on the continent while serving wide range of industries to meet the growing need for fuel grade ethanol.
Discover Cellulosic Ethanol
It is a type of biofuel produced from lignocellulose, a structural material that comprises much of the mass of plants. Lignocellulose is composed mainly of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. Corn stover, Panicum virgatum (switchgrass) (more...)
- Motor fuel
- Household heating
- Treatment for poisoning by other alcohols
Currently, the demand for ethanol in Nigeria and West Africa is ten times larger than the supply. Over 98% of ethanol available is imported. In addition, we estimate the potential market for ethanol fuel in West Africa alone to be over $12.3 billion per annum. (more...)
