Green Circle and Synthos start to commercialize biobutadiene technology together

In Texas, Lummus Technology announced that its Green Circle business and Synthos have started collaborating to commercialize Synthos’ biobutadiene technology. The first step of the commercialization program includes the development of a feasibility study for a biobutadiene plant with a production capacity of 20,000 tons per year, which will form the basis for an investment decision.

This cooperation will focus on the development and commercialization of a novel technology to process renewable bio-based feedstocks to produce value-added, more sustainable synthetic rubbers. Green Circle, a business entity owned by Lummus Technology, concentrates on economically and technically sound solutions for the comprehensive processing of solid wastes containing plastics; for processing various renewable bio-based feedstocks to value-added chemicals, polymers and fuels; and for the decarbonization of refinery and petrochemicals assets.
