Danish biorefinery can save US billions

The Danish Inbicon biorefinery process could save the US billions on foreign oil, the organization states.
Inbicon, part of Denmark's DONG Energy Group, believes that its patented straw-to-bioethanol process could help save the United States USD 700 billion per year spent on foreign oil.

The process developed by Inbicon does not attempt to turn every sugar molecule into ethanol, but instead produces four high-value end products: ethanol, a powdered biomass-based fuel that can be combusted to provide heat to drive the process, a bacterial inhibitor for use in the fermentation processes, and molasses syrup for use as livestock feed.

The concept has been successfully tested at pilot plant level, and Inbicon is now building a larger scale biomass refinery at Kalundborg on Zealand
