Description

Future of this systems is that it uses “hot water-saccharification method” in saccharification process. 
Unlike the existing systems this systems does not use sulfuric acid so acid-resistant vessels and recovery equipment are not required and costs are lower because it does not use enzyme.

Features

Circulation and utilization of carbon such as waste rice straw

The straw, which remained in the paddy field after harvest, is decomposed by microbe and becomes CO2, which is emitted into atmosphere. When a rice grows, this CO2 is absorbed by photosynthesis from the atmosphere. Thus, by utilizing the “carbon neutral” bioethanol manufactured from biomass as a fuel for automobile instead of gasoline, it can suppress the emission of CO2.
