Enormous strides have been made by first-generation biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel using crops that were readily available–primarily corn, sugar cane and soybeans. While we believe in the merits of first-generation biofuels and applaud all those who have contributed to their success, we believe they are just the first step on a path to reducing our use of fossil fuels.

Taking Sugar-Based Ethanol Production a Step Further

Malibu sweet sorghum, a crop high in sugar content, can be processed in sugar mills to seasonally extend ethanol production when sugarcane is not available, thereby allowing capital costs to be amortized over a larger total volume of production. Malibu sweet sorghum can be harvested during these months and processed by existing mills with little or no additional capital investments.

Advanced Feedstocks for Advanced Biofuels

Advanced and cellulosic biofuels facilities are evolving from pilot to commercial scale. As this new generation of the biofuels industry emerges, the demand for new, scalable, sugar and cellulosic feedstocks is growing. For those processes based on sugar fermentation, Malibu sweet sorghum provides reliable, consistent, cost-competitive sugars in a broad range of geographies. For cellulosic processes, Carbo Alto cellulosic sorghum provides reliable, consistent, cost-competitive biomass feedstock.
