Industrial Biotechnology Corporation,(IBC) is pleased to announce the Ethanol Chemicals ALCHEMx Production Platforms.

This proprietary process integrates technologies, manufacturing methods, and distribution to produce eco-efficient and cost effective chemicals utilizing renewable resources as an alternative to petroleum. This sustainable solution meets global demand to reduce global warming and decrease dependence on foreign oil.

Renewable Chemicals Corporation, an IBC subsidiary, will use the ALCHEMx Production Platforms to convert sugarcane based ethanol to ethylene. The bio-ethylene can then be converted into various downstream chemicals including ethylene oxide, low density and high density polyethylene, styrene and polystyrene.

Existing manufacturing infrastructure can be utilized that now produce these same chemicals from petroleum based ethylene.

"The conversion of ethanol into chemicals is not a new process or technology, some of the first plastics produced were originally made from ethanol. Due to increasing petroleum costs and global warming, this is a now a very compelling, eco-efficient alternative to traditional petrochemical production", stated Andrew Badolato, IBC Chairman and CEO.
