Celtic Renewables’ patented low-carbon technology converts unwanted, low-value biological material into high-value, low-carbon sustainable chemicals & biofuel. Construction of their first industrial-scale biorefinery is nearing completion, scheduled for Q1 2021. Downstream markets set to be worth over $130bn by 2025.
Our mission is to re-establish, at a global scale, the Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) fermentation process, utilising local low value materials to produce low-carbon, high-value, sustainable products.
Our proposition is simple: we take the residual by-products from Scottish Whisky production, which are produced in large volumes & are problematic to dispose of, and use our patented process to convert them into high-value, low-carbon products, namely Acetone, Butanol, Ethanol & high grade animal feed. These products play an important role in our daily lives & have applications in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food production, hygiene products & advanced sustainable biofuels.
Our construction of Scotland’s first biorefinery is nearing completion. We have designed the plant with the intention that it will produce up to 1m litres of sustainable biochemicals annually, & is the pivotal near-term step before we launch our ambitious international growth plans.
The downstream markets for ABE biochemicals are set to be worth over £130bn by 2025. As a true platform technology, our process has applications to a wide range of other biological residues worldwide. We have already received strong interest from a number of chemical companies looking to purchase our outputs.
Investment will be used to bring our first industrial scale plant into full operation & capitalise on commercial opportunities.
