Nova Pangaea’s Lignocellulosic Technology fully fractionates biomass in order to produce C-5 and C-6 sugars of industrial purity, in large scale volumes at competitive prices, so that the liquid fuel and chemical sectors have a realistic replacement for crude oil based products.

Our proprietary and patent-protected process embraces the following design principles:

    • Continuous – Minimising capital and operational costs/tonne of product

    • Scalable – Parallel processing will enable deployment at oil industry scale

    • Energy and Material Efficient – Converting >80% of the biomass carbon into saleable products and energy

 

Uniquely, the NPT process progressively refines the biomass stream, extracting the full range of valuable products from the ligno-cellulosic feedstock at every stage.

 

The advantages of the Technology include

 

  • No enzymes or bacteria: High yields on sugars, lower costs, greater product range

  • No wastes: All fractions of the biomass can be recovered for saleable products, including inorganics

  • Flexibility: Products can be converted into fuels or organic chemicals. Feedstock agnostic

  • Low capital cost: Continuous process gives intrinsic capital and operatig cost advantages over batch processes at equivalent scale

  • Low operating costs: High energy efficiency (recovery) and low chemicals cost ensures low operating costs

  • Simplicity: The process is based on proven chemistry and technology

  • Speed: The process is fast, with the C5 step taking only 15 minutes, the C6 step only seconds…
