PROESA™ / The economic model
The economic model

The key of PROESA™ success: competitiveness

  • PROESA™ bases its competitive economics on geography and on biomass.
  • 5,0-5,5 tons of biomass (on a dry basis) yield 1 ton of ethanol.
  • Low-cost investments (simple process, non-complex industrial plants).
  • Efficient performance even in small scale industrial plants.
  • The energy for the industrial plant is obtained from lignin.
  • Competitive on a global scale, without the need for subsidies.
  • Maximum flexibility in the use of raw materials: dedicated plant varieties (energy crops) such as Arundo donax, agricultural waste, woody biomass, bagasse, straw, grass, oil palm residues.
