Carbon2Butanol (C2B)

  • Project Description

    C2B's process is a novel microbially-mediated process and is based on the ability of Oakbio’s proprietary microbial strain to use CO2 from any flue gas and hydrogen (H2) as a feedstock to produce n-butanol, a valuable drop-in biofuel and chemical. In fact, n-butanol is primarily used to make durable acrylic plastics, but is also a superior biofuel, which addresses a massive market as a potential gasoline replacement. Oakbio’s microbial strain grows in a standard fermenter that can be located next to the flue stack of the factories and can capture flue gas directly at the point source with minimal retrofitting.
