The Bio-Isobutanol Advantage

The Bio-Isobutanol Advantage

We see the future of biofuels as having a variety of solutions that can help create diversified fuels supply for consumers. That’s why we’ve partnered with BP plc through our joint venture Butamax®, to bring cost-effective but highly innovative technology to market to create bio-isobutanol. An alternative to ethanol that can also be blended into transportation fuels, bio-isobutanol is another way to drive the biofuels industry to build cleaner, self-sustaining energy communities.
