ZeaChem is a producer of sustainable and economical advanced biofuels and bio-based chemicals from domestic, renewable agricultural and forestry resources. 2013, ZeaChem successfully produced the first volumes of cellulosic chemicals and ethanol at its demonstration biorefinery on the path to commercialization.
ZeaChem is a producer of sustainable and economical advanced biofuels and bio-based chemicals from domestic, renewable agricultural and forestry resources. Earlier this year, ZeaChem successfully produced the first volumes of cellulosic chemicals and ethanol at its demonstration biorefinery on the path to commercialization. With facility registration complete, cellulosic ethanol production will now generate RINs to achieve the national RFS2.

About ZeaChem Inc.

ZeaChem Inc. has developed a cellulose-based biorefinery platform capable of producing advanced fuels and intermediate chemicals. ZeaChem's indirect approach leapfrogs the yield and carbon dioxide (CO2) problems associated with traditional and cellulosic based biorefinery processes. In addition, ZeaChem has a significant capital cost advantage compared to other cellulosic technologies. By efficiently extracting the most energy possible from biomass feedstocks, ZeaChem significantly increases output while reducing both production costs and environmental impacts. Incorporated in 2002, ZeaChem is headquartered in Lakewood, Colo. and operates a research and development laboratory facility in Menlo Park, Calif., and a demonstration biorefinery in Boardman, Ore. the plant is located at  ZeaChem Inc. Biorefinery, 71099 Rail Loop Drive, Boardman, OR 97818

Technology brief

The conversion process uses naturally-occurring organisms and proven, industrial equipment in order to reduce scale-up risk. Non-GMO bacteria ferment cellulosic sugars with nearly 100% carbon efficiency and the combination of biological and thermochemical processes deliver a 40% yield advantage compared to other processes. Like a petrochemical refinery, ZeaChem biorefineries can make multiple fuels and chemicals, shifting production to the highest margin products. Fuel products include ethanol; chemical products include acetic acid, and ethyl acetate.
