CIMV also signed a technology partnership with Technip, a leader in project management, engineering, and construction for the energy industry.
To date, CIMV is the only biorefinery that can use these processes to generate non-deteriorated lignin and produce pure glucose.
As CIMV has the only technology that can optimally extract three main components from the feedstock, it has obtained business from BIOCORE's[euro]20.
We are delighted with this partnership with CIMV, which will enable us to take our development further in a market which has undeniable potential for growth and is of strategically importance for many of our clients.
With Technip's support, CIMV is now able to offer a coherent and solid range of products and services to all industrial companies wanting to develop new bio-sourced applications and anticipate future regulations," concludes Thiery Scholastique, Chairman of the Board of Directors with CIMV.
The plant material used in this CIMV process is non-food and comes from agricultural byproducts (cereal straw, bagasse from sugarcane and sweet sorghum) or fiber crops (hemp, flax, Provence cane and miscanthus), but can also come from forestry waste.
CIMV has associated with Dyadic for thedevelopment of an optimized enzyme mixture to the process.
Morever, to CIMV, Taurus Energy and Dyadic, CRITT BIO INDUSTRIES and TWB (Toulouse White Biotechnology) in addition have partnered in this consortia.
Our scientists are working closely with CIMV scientists to tailor our C1 enzyme technology to CIMV's high quality cellulose and hemicellulose, which we expect will significantly enhance our capabilities as an integrated technology offering.
About CIMV The company CIMV (Compagnie Industrielle de la Matiere Vegetale), founded in 1998, has developed a revolutionary concept of lignocellulosic biorefinery.
The feedstock used in the CIMV process is non-food material and comes from agricultural byproducts (cereal straw, bagasse from sugarcane and sweet sorghum) or fiber crops (hemp, flax, Provence cane and miscanthus), but can also come from forestry residues.
Further, to raise more efficient, fully integrated processes to produce environmentally low impact biofuels and bio-based chemicals, Dyadic and CIMV
would work jointly.
