Clariant Signs 2nd License for Cellulosic Ethanol Technology

Cindy Zimmerman

Clariant and ORLEN Południe have signed a license agreement on sunliquid® cellulosic ethanol technology.

The announcement represents a significant strategic milestone for Clariant as this second license agreement for its sunliquid technology is another successful step to commercialize its highly innovative and sustainable technology. For ORLEN Południe, the agreement supports the intention to realize a full scale commercial plant for the production of cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues, which will further solidify the company’s position as a forerunner in the Polish biofuels and bio-component technologies.

Clariant is a specialty chemical company headquartered in Switzerland, and ORLEN Południe is a leader in the fuels and energy markets. The license agreement enables ORLEN Południe to use Clariant’s sunliquid technology for planned project development and plant operation at its Jedlicze site in southeastern Poland with the potential to integrate with the existing petroleum refinery.
