Converting Ethanol to Butanol: The Digest’s 2020 Multi-Slide Guide to Catalyxx’s Ethanol Technology
Initially developed by Abengoa, Catalyxx has exclusive rights for a technology to convert ethanol efficiently into butanol and higher alcohols and aims for the production of high-value renewable chemicals from ethanol.
The chemical process is based on the Guerbet reaction or condensation of ethanol and produces a combination of very valuable mid range alcohols (C6, C8 and C10). Check out Catalyxx’s tech status, the economics behind the tech for ethanol producers, and more.
