Alliance BioEnergy’s CTS Fuel is Proving to Cost Remarkably Less to Build and Operate Compared to Other Cellulosic Ethanol Technologies and Traditional Corn Ethanol Plants
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 19, 2015 -- Alliance BioEnergy Plus, Inc. (OTCQB:ALLM) (the "Company"), announced today that with the completion of Front End Loading 2 (FEL 2) engineering the stark difference between the CTS process and all other fuel technologies is becoming more apparent from a capital building expense as well as yearly operating expense.
The CTS Cellulose Ethanol plant processing 1,000mt a day of virtually any cellulose biomass and producing upwards of 34 MMGY of high-grade ethanol with 86% less emissions than gasoline will cost approximately $1.97 a nameplate gallon to build.
By comparison DuPont just announced the opening of their 30 MMGY enzymatic cellulose ethanol plant in Iowa at a cost of $225 million. That is $7.50 a nameplate gallon to build. Last year Poet-DSM opened a 25 MMGY cellulosic ethanol plant at a cost of $250 million or $10.00 a nameplate gallon.
A traditional corn ethanol plant costs approximately $2.38 a nameplate gallon to build. The CTS process can also be added to a traditional corn ethanol plant as a bolt-on addition for a minimal cost. This will allow the corn plant to eliminate up to seven (7) current processes while reducing overall energy consumption by more than 70%. The plant can continue to process corn kernel with higher yields, recover 5x the valuable corn oil and begin to transition away from the kernel in favor of any other cellulose biomass, without any down time.
Alliance will be licensing its CTS Cellulose Ethanol bolt-on solution to ethanol producers while seeking to build and operate Cellulose Ethanol plants in the US and abroad.
