Sweetwater Energy’s JV to Convert CO2 to Sugars

NY-based renewable sugar producer Sweetwater Energy, Inc., has announced a 50/50 joint venture with Naturally Scientific, Inc. to produce sugar from waste carbon dioxide. Sweetwater’s new ultra-flexible feedstock model opens up multiple new ways of delivering quality sugars to customers for a cost believed much lower than the current market can provide.

Naturally Scientific has spent five years creating its modular, rapid-growth and high-yield bio-manufacturing platform. The company has constructed a demonstration plant in Nottingham, UK, that has been fully operational for two years, producing sugar and vegetable oils from carbon dioxide. The demonstration plant uses full-sized equipment that proves the technology, automated process control systems, yields and unit economics at a commercial scale.
