AVAPCO is partnering with other organizations with a desire to own & operate manufacturing facilities producing fuel and/or chemical products from renewable plant biomass. This strategy utilizes the AVAPCO research & development facility in Thomaston, GA which includes a research laboratory and the demonstration facility having the ability to convert up to 3 tons per day of biomass to sugars and fermented products.
We intend to utilize the Thomaston facility with commercial partners to develop the design package required to design and build a commercial manufacturing plant.
AVAP® Demonstration Plant
- Location: Thomaston, GA
- Biomass Feed stocks: Able to handle both wood chips and agricultural residues
- Products: Cellulose fibers, Biomass hydrolyzate rich in pentose sugars, Hydrolyzed cellulose fibers rich in glucose and fermentation broth such as ethanol fermentation broth
- Capacity: Up to 1 to 3 tons per day biomass feed depending on feedstock density
AVAP® Demonstration Plant Status
The plant started processing agricultural residues late in the first quarter 2013 and continues to expand its capabilities today.
AVAP® co-produces cellulose (pulp) and ethanol from biomass in an integrated biorefinery application.
