Development of biobased products


Introduction to Section 5 Session 5 Bio-based product development is an old concept that is rapidly expanding and entering new levels of commercialization. The current goal is economic and renewable suites of products from new biorefineries, which will include production of primary products and co-products together. The primary bio-based products can include oils, commodity or specialty chemicals, and materials. Combined with power and fuel ethanol, bio-based products are critical for enhanced value in the various mixed product streams envisioned emerging from either current agricultural products, agricultural and forest residues; or direct biomass crops. This session, organized by Dr. David Glassner (Cargill Dow, Minnetonka, MN) and Dr. Todd Werpy (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, WA) focused the oral session on examples of methods to capture this potential mix of products. Kyle Beery of Archer-Daniels Midland Company gave a progress report on a hydrolysis sugar platform from corn fiber. Key issues were hydrolysis methods, inhibitors, and the variability of corn fiber. David Glassner of Cargill Dow presented a corporate vision of a sustainable industry building on their lactide fermentation platform. Their 400 million lb/year lactic acid plant is under construction with a planned start date in early 2003. Kevin Gray
