Industrial Scale Pre-Commercial Plant For Second Generation Lignocellulosic Ethanol

COMETHA is a collaborative project started in 2014 and co-funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union. The scope of COMETHA is the construction and operation of an integrated industrial facility for the production of second generation bioethanol and other co-products from lignocellulosic feedstock. The plant will be the first of its kind at pre-commercial scale and will be based on the innovative PROESA® technology, developed by Biochemtex and successfully demonstrated at the Crescentino plant, that is operational since 2013 with a capacity of 40.000 tons per year of bioethanol.
