LS9’s microbial catalysts convert renewable feedstocks in a single-step fermentation, producing an immiscible product that naturally separates into an easily recoverable organic phase. Recovery requires only an oil-water separation and the removal of minor impurities, depending on product use.
LS9’s single-step conversion creates end-use products directly through the fermentation processThis eliminates the need for additional chemical unit operations that require additional capital expenditures, operating costs, and an overall loss of yield. The LS9 one-step fermentation processes, enable the same industrial fermentation capital equipment to be used to produce multiple products, by simply introducing alternative LS9 product specific catalysts. LS9’s microbial catalysts naturally and efficiently utilize the C5 and C6 sugars derived from traditional and biomass feedstocks. As feedstock costs are the major component in the production of biofuels and renewable chemicals, flexibility to utilize a vast array of feedstock allows LS9 to focus on the lowest cost source.
The simplicity of LS9 technology translates into both lower capital expenditures and operating costs and a better safety and environmental io-technologies and other advanced bio-products processes.
