GeoSynFuels has developed a proprietary platform for the production of cellulosic ethanol and other biobased products. The 5CSTM Process was developed after an extensive review of the cellulosic biofuel landscape. The Process overcomes or avoids many of the traditional external commercialization barriers including feedstock aggregation, fuel certification, green-field development and equipment related technology risks.

Our approach to process development is unique with a focus not only on the required technology but also on the end users. To be viable cellulosic technologies need to integrate easily into existing biomass value chains and be complementary to existing uses. Technology adoption is achieved through both compelling economics and minimization of impacts from the technology on existing operations.

GSF's 5CSTM Process is a bolt-on platform that integrates easily into existing biomass facilities such as sugar cane and pulp mills, The value of the existing feedstocks is maximized through the conversion of the hemicellulose portion of the biomass to ethanol and leaving a valuable residue suitable for the host's original use, be it co-generation or paper production...

Our Technology

GeoSynFuels, LLC (“GSF”) has developed a proprietary economic method for the production of biofuels and biochemicals (including cellulosic ethanol and acetic acid).  This technology “bolts-on” to existing sugar cane processing facilities (or other biomass facilities) and enables the production of significant incremental ethanol at low cost.

Relative to peer technologies, 5CS™ has low operating costs (less than $1 per gallon), low capital costs (less than $4 per gallon of annual capacity) and a much shorter path to commercialization.

The 5CS™ Process provides a plug-and-play ethanol package to existing biomass aggregators such as sugar cane processors and pulp mills. The process has the potential to provide new co-product ethanol revenues to both industries.  Additionally, the 5CS™ Process has the potential to be applied to the frontend of biomass-to-energy facilities including applications such as cogeneration and pellet plants...
