Nova Pangaea’s strategy is to deliver the highest possible yield of fuels and platform chemicals from renewable biomass feedstocks – Refnova is set to be the pathway to world class process efficiency and superior returns on investment.
NPT’s patented process offers several benefits over conventional lignocellulosic fractionation methods:
Offers greater product output rates relative to conventional, bio-active driven, batch processes
Feedstock agnostic design removes any potential for interruption to supplies, and allows for process adoption in various geographical environments
No requirement for bio-actives, such as enzymes or bacteria, which reduces both operation time and cost
Simplicity and flexibility of the process enables comparatively straightforward scale up
2nd generation feedstocks are abundantly available, at low cost, and present no implication on the ‘food vs. fuel’ debate
6. Waste Minimisation
Full utilisation of feedstock; all constituent elements of the biomass are converted into valuable product streams
Refnova generates three respective ‘platform chemical’ product streams; C5 liquid sugars, C6 liquid sugars and char. Via additional downstream processing, said streams can then be converted into a diverse range of consumer products – generated via various industries such as pharmaceutical, petroleum and food & drink.
