American Process Inc. is a global leader in the development of technologies for
the commercial production of sugar and ethanol from non-food based biomass such as woodchips.
Our Alpena Biorefinery, one of the USA's first cellulosic ethanol plants started up in Q2, 2012.
GreenPower+® is a patented technology for the
production of low cost cellulosic sugars from the hemicelluloses of biomass in co-production
AVAP® is a patented technology
for the production of low cost cellulosic sugars from the cellulose and hemicelluloses
of any biomass in a stand alone facility.
Our Alpena Biorefinery started
up in June 2012. The biorefinery converts hardwood hemicelluloses cellulosic sugars and acetic acid
and further converts the sugars to cellulosic ethanol and the acetic acid to biobased potassium acetate deicer. On April 2014 the Alpena Biorefinery sold the first cellulosic ethanol RINs.
