NATURAL CARBON (CO2) CAPTURE
 

Thanks to photosynthesis, lignocellulosic biomass becomes the most profitable and ecological atmospheric carbon sequester (in the form of CO2).

 

The provision of lignocellulosic biomass is largely sufficient by using only its residues to supply global and renewable energy.

CEREAL STRAWS

 

Cereals concern all varieties of wheat, corn, rice, barley, rye, oats, etc.

 

The FAO anticipates an annual harvest of more than 2 billion tonnes of cereals for 2020.

 

Almost 2 billion tons of lignocellulosic residues in the form of straw will therefore be available and recoverable.

WOOD RESIDUES
 

FAO reports global dry wood production of around 4 billion tons per year.

 

In industrial forestry, 1/3 of the wood remains on site and becomes an undeveloped lignocellulosic residue.

 

Its advantage is to be available without changing the current operating system.

THE SUGAR CANE BAGASSE
 

It is the fibrous part obtained after the extraction of cane sugar.

 

More than 500 million dry tonnes are collected each year and used to supply the thermal energy required in sugar factories.

 

With the fall of world price sugar, this energy sector is no longer enough to ensure a financial equilibrium for this industry without having a subsidy.

THE OIL PALM

 

Concomitant with the production of palm oil, the oil palm annually generates an overall production of nearly 300 million tons of dry matter.

 

They are available immediately in factories, of which only 30% are used for energy needs. The rest becoming a non-valued lignocellulosic residue.

 

By adding value to this residue, this will give these plantations a strong ecological image by doubling profits without changing anything in the existing.

ENERGETIC CROPS

 

It is the easiest type of lignocellulosic biomass to recover and produce.

 

Energy crops require little fertilizer, few pesticides and they thrive on poor soil or in extensive pastures.

 

Among the very common energy plants, Miscanthus, or elephant grass, is considered to be the most suitable carbon resource for supplying energy and products to the whole world.

NCCSU™ and LEEBIO™

 

All these lignocellulosic residues can alone provide the necessary global supply of energy and raw materials while respecting  the natural carbon cycle by the concept of the NCCSU™.

 

LEEBIO™ technology extracts its products from these raw materials with an unprecedented economic and ecological impact,

 

Without fossil CO2 emissions
