Henan Tianguan Accelerates Development of Cellulosic Ethanol

Henan Tianguan Fuel Ethanol Co., Ltd. (Henan Tianguan) plans to launch cellulosic ethanol plants to gradually expand its capacity in next three years, which is expected to reach 120,000t/a in 2014.

Henan Tianguan will start to construct the plants at the end of 2011. As revealed by Mr. Cheng, a staff of Cellulosic Ethanol Department in Henan Tianguan, the company has already decided to construct about 12 plants with capacity of about 10,000t/a respectively in Nanyang City, Henan Province. It is predicted that the plants will consume about 1 million tonnes of straw annually, if the production lines are all launched in the near future. That means the farmers' revenue in the city will increase by USD46 million per year.

As the first cellulosic ethanol manufacturer with capacity of 10,000t/a, Henan Tianguan is confident about the cost of cellulosic ethanol, which is lower than that in other competitors. According to Mr. Cheng, cellulase is the key element to reduce the cost of cellulosic ethanol. Compared with other cellulosic ethanol producers, such as COFCO, he explains that Henan Tianguan has rich experience in cellulase research. That’s why the cost of cellulase is much lower than that in COFCO.

Moreover, Chinese government’s subsidy boosts the development of cellulosic ethanol industry. The policy of straw subsidy from the Chinese Government will be established at the end of 2011. Also, with Chinese Government accelerating the publication of some policies, such as encouraging the companies' development in cellulosic ethanol research, the enthusiasm of cellulosic ethanol will increase greatly. Henan Tianguan producing cellulosic ethanol receives a subsidy of about USD157/t from the Chinese Government, which makes the company maintain the profitability.

The development of cellulosic ethanol in Henan Tianguan reveals that the company is accelerating its development of cellulosic ethanol to occupy a favorable position in cellulosic ethanol industry.
