ETHANOL

Merichem’s LO CAT® process is currently playing a critical role for its customers that are converting renewable crops into food ingredients and energy. Specifically these applications include the treatment of ventilation air and biogas. In 2005 the LO CAT® technology was incorporated into a bio-ethanol facility allowing the biogases that are generated to be upgraded and utilized in other processing steps. The success of this initial installation led to the incorporation of the LO CAT® process at other bio-ethanol and bio-propandiol plants.
