Global Bioenergies (Euronext Growth: ALGBE) has entrusted EVEA, a company specialized in calculation of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), with a study focused on the products to be manufactured in the future IBN-One plant.
Fully renewable ETBE is estimated to enable 69% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil gasoline. As part of the ISOPROD project financed by the Investissements d'Avenir program and operated by the ADEME, an assessment of the environmental impact of the future renewable isobutene plant IBN-One was performed by Evea, a company specialized in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and eco-design. The LCA focused on the production of renewable isobutene derived from sugar beet under the IBN-One plant design in collaboration with Cristal Union, partner of Global Bioenergies in this joint-venture. The preliminary results of the analysis according to the greenhouse gases emissions calculator compliant with the Renewable Energy Directive was that fully renewable ETBE (Ethyl Tert-Butyl Ether), produced from renewable isobutene and bioethanol, is associated with a reduction of 69% of CO2 equivalent emissions if compared to fossil gasoline.
