Rhodia and the National Bioethanol Science and Technology Laboratory in Brazil partner on pathways for high value-added molecules from sugarcane biomass 30 April 2012 Rhodia, a member of the Solvay Group, and the National Bioethanol Science and Technology Laboratory (CTBE) in Brazil have signed an agreement to develop chemical routes and processes to obtain high value-added molecules from sugarcane biomass. Under the agreement, research will be conducted at CTBE, backed by researchers from both parties, who will work together on the development of chemical blocks currently used in different applications and markets in which the Solvay Group operates, with a view to replacing non-renewable sources with biomass in these substances’ production processes. The head of research at CTBE, Maria Teresa Barbosa, says that the first two years of development of these technologies will...
