Frost & Sullivan Applauds CIMV's VisionFrost & Sullivan Applauds CIMV's Vision in Introducing a Biorefinery Process that Uses Second-Generation Biofuels instead of Whole Plants PR Newswire LONDON, Dec. 19, 2013 - CIMV is the only company that can successfully separate the three components of lignocellulosic biomass with a high level of purity Based on its recent analysis of the biochemicals market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Compagnie Industrielle de la Matiere Vegetale (CIMV) with Frost & Sullivan's 2013 French Visionary Innovation Award. CIMV's extensive research to find a viable substitute for petroleum has led to a biorefinery concept that focuses on second-generation biofuels and chemicals. These types of biofuels use only plant residuals (straws, forest residues, wood, miscanthus, and switch grass) and not the plant itself. Biorefineries have to employ a challenging process in order to accurately break down the complex hydrocarbon, lignin, for extracting cellulose from a plant. CIMV collaborated with key participants to implement best practices that can aid in breaking down a plant's components to their purest forms. CIMV uses byproducts such as cereal straw, sugarcane bagasse, sweet sorghum, or fibre crops (hemp, flax, Provence cane, and miscanthus), and hardwood, which points to significant feedstock flexibility in its processes. Once these technologies are patented, they present a unique, competitive advantage over other industry participants.
