Sweetwater will utilize Carbofrac, BioGasol’s pretreatment technology to maximize the amount of sugar that can be extracted from plant-based feedstocks.

Sweetwater Energy chair and CEO Arunas Chesonis said the combination of BioGasol’s pretreatment technology merges with the advances the company made in hydrolysis and inhibitor reduction.

Sweetwater Energy utilizes a unique technology to produce low-cost sugars from non-food plant materials.

The company’s sugar solution is sold to refineries, which use this feedstock to produce biofuels, biochemicals, and bioplastics.

Sweetwater Energy’s process uses renewable plant materials and crop residues, and which can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
