US ethanol ventures to Vietnam
Biofuel International 20 January 2009
Agresti also plans to start building its first US project in Kentucky in Q2
Indiana, US-based Agresti, an ethanol-making venture, has signed an agreement with Vietnam’s Phuc Yen Co. to build and operate ethanol facilities in Vietnam.
Agresti’s venture will produce ethanol from landfill waste in Vietnam using a gravity-pressure-vessel technology.
Formerly known as Indiana Ethanol Power, Agresti plans to start building its first US project in Pike County, Kentucky in Q2 2009.
The gravity-pressure-vessel technology that Agresti obtained from GeneSyst International consists of a 2,000-foot-deep hole driven into the ground and lined with steel.
A slurry of oatmeal-like cellulose processed from trash drops into the shaft under extreme pressure and heat.
The sugar-like substance is pumped back up for distillation into the automotive fuel ethanol.
