The Next Generation of Pioneers: The Cellulosic Leaders Circle

The call to develop renewably sourced biofuels is clear. With rapid population growth and global expansion, energy consumption is expected to climb. Fossil fuels have limitations, and the demand for localized solutions and sustainable transport fuels requires a new, renewable source. 

The technology exists to create ethanol from straw and biochemcials from bagasse. Now begins the drive to expand. Commercial success requires leaders to manage a diversity of risks and questions that challenge every aspect of the industry. For these pioneers, DuPont is an ally with experience. As one of the largest science-driven businesses in the world, we know what it means to move technology form the lab to profitable, commercial scale.

Today DuPont demonstrates our commitment to cellulosic ethanol and sugars by standing shoulder to shoulder with a new generation of leaders who don’t just take risks—they break through them. Commercializing the cellulosic industry requires working together in new ways, collaborating across traditional boundaries and taking bold—but calculated—leaps forward.

Here are some of the ways DuPont™ Accellerase® is helping lead the next generation of growth:

Tested at Scale

DuPont’s cellulosic ethanol pilot plant in Vonore, Tennessee runs with Accellerase® enzymes optimized for the DuPont Cellulosic Ethanol integrated process. See how DuPont’s partnerships with farmers is leading the curve for new energy crops.

Collaborative Innovation

The partnership between Inbicon and DuPont created the first commercially available cellulosic ethanol. We continue to collaborate on process and enzyme innovations that improve the conversion of straw to ethanol.
