AVAPCO, BYOGY Renewables, and Petron Scientech Announce Partnership to Demonstrate Technologies in the ABBA Integrated Biorefinery Project
ATLANTA, GEORGIA OCTOBER 09, 2017
The ABBA Integrated Biorefinery project, to be built at the AVAPCO Thomaston Georgia site, will co-produce bio jet fuel and Bioplus® nanocellulose. It has received a Phase 1, $3.7 million award from the Department of Energy.

Negotiations with the Department of Energy (DOE) were completed and Phase 1 of the “Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts with AVAP (ABBA)” project has begun. The ABBA project will co-produce full replacement renewable jet fuel, gasoline, diesel and Bioplus® nanocellulose from woody biomass in an integrated biorefinery at AVAPCO’s site in Thomaston, Georgia.

Energy I-Corps pairs National Lab researchers with industry mentors for an intensive two month training where the researchers define their technology value propositions, conduct customer discovery interviews, and develop viable market pathways. The NREL team included Principle Investigator Peter Ciesielski, Co-PI Ruoran Zhang, and Entrepreneurial Lead David Robichaud.

Congratulations to the NREL team for a great culmination video.
