Renewable hydrogen and carbon dioxide via trioxane into bioproducts in standard facilities
FeedstocksUnited (FSU) develops a completely new technology concept enabling bioproduction of circular chemicals, fuels, biopolymers and Single Cell Protein without relying on either fossil-based feedstocks or sugars.
The FSU-technology is based on biologically converting trioxane (a cyclic trimeric polymer of formaldehyde) into valuable bioproducts via aerobic fermentations.
Trioxane can be obtained from CO2 and renewable H2 via methanol.
Two options will be available in utilizing trioxane by genetically-modified industrial microbes:
- Trioxane as sole feestock in the production of relatively oxidized compounds
- Mixed-substrate utilization of methanol and trioxane in the production of relatively reduced compounds.
