First renewable gasoline sample delivered to Audi

GBE Press Release /

Global Bioenergies has delivered the first batch of renewable gasoline to Audi. The first isobutene batch produced from renewable resources (here: corn-derived glucose) at Global Bioenergies’ industrial pilot in Pomacle-Bazancourt, near Reims in France, had been delivered to the chemical company Arkema early May 2015. Subsequent isobutene batches have been converted into isooctane by the Fraunhofer CBP at the Leuna refinery where Global Bioenergies is now building its demo plant.
