Alliance has licensed Vertimass’ technology that produces renewable jet fuel along with Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylenes (BTEX).
Vertimass’ technology allows sustainable production of these vital fuels and chemicals derived from ethanol with high yields that can dramatically reducegreenhouse gas emissions compared to sourcing these products from petroleum. BTEX is a widely used building block from which hundreds of consumer products ranging from pharmaceuticals to paints and plastics are made.
Vertimass’ Ethanol-to-Jet fuel and BTEX technology offers cellulosic ethanol producers, such as Alliance, the flexibility to diversify their product slateand market renewable fuels and chemicals that have low carbon footprints. In addition to improving competitiveness, jet fuel and BTEX derived from ethanol can accelerate the transition to renewable fuels and chemicals and improve rural economies.
