Licella's approach eliminates a number of steps, and does not rely upon enzymes, or the removal of the hemicellulose. Licella's technology processes all the ligno-cellulosic material in a continuous flow, catalytic hydro-thermal reactor - it’s faster, cleaner and more cost effective.
The result is a stable Bio-Crude oil, which can be readily transported to traditional refineries; where it is intended to be blended with traditional crude oil, and refined to a series of transport fuels, including aviation, road and marine transportation fuels.
Licella is an Australian-based company that has developed a unique process to transform renewable woody-waste materials into an array of biofuels.
The Licella process has been running at our pilot plant at Somersby (just north of Sydney), Australia for over 3 years.
Having won an
Australian Federal Grant, our 2nd generation Commercialisation Demonstration Plant (CDP), has been opened by the Minister for Resources and Energy, Martin Ferguson AM MP, on the 14th December 2011.
