Global Bioenergies is a French company producing light liquid hydrocarbons derived from agricultural products using biological methods.
The company was founded in 2008 by Marc Delcourt and Philippe Marlière.
The pilot plant came on stream in May 2015. The company announced production of one tonne of bio-isobutene from 3.84 tonnes of sugars.
Created in the Évry Génopole Biocluster in the Essonne department in France, Global Bioenergies operated a demo plant in the ARD (Agro-industrie Recherche et Développements) research and development structure BioDemo pilot in Pomacle-Bazancourt. A pilot is under construction at the Leuna refinery in Germany and is scheduled to come on stream during 2016. Global Bioenergies also founded IBN-One, a joint-venture with Cristal Union, to install a plant in France, which should be operational in 2018.
The first process developed is the production of mehtylpropene (also called isobutene or isobutylene) from glucose, according to a process developed in 2010. The bacteria involved in the transformation process carry artificial enzymatic material developed through genetic engineering.
Global Bioenergies subsequently agreed a partnership with Audi to produce fuel from the same elementary building blocks as plants (water, hydrogen, carbon dioxide and day light).
