Clextral will be present at Bioket 2023 from May 23rd to May 25th in Trois-Rivières (Quebec, Canada) at the CECi Trois-Rivières. This is the global conference dedicated to processes and technologies applied to biomass.

Lionel Danos – Market Manager Green Industries and John Barber – Sales Manager USA & Canada will be delighted to discuss your projects with you at our booth #22.

Twin-screw extrusion technology for biomass conversion

Our green industry technologies can convert bioresources into high added value products. 

By combining physical, chemical and thermal operations in a single intensified processing unit, the twin-screw process is highly efficient for the conversion of lignocellulosic biomass into biomaterials, biochemicals and biofuels.

Lionel Danos, our Market Manager Green Industries, will give a presentation entitled “Intensified continuous biomass treatment by twin screw extrusion” on Thursday, May 25.

Thanks to this innovative technology, it is possible to transform biomass into useful products for many markets such as the food industry, cosmetics, health…

Valuing biomass, in an environmentally friendly way

Lignocellulosic biomass is the most abundant renewable carbon source on the planet. The use of biomass pretreatment is part of an environmentally friendly approach. The goal is to transform biomass into biofuels and chemical products that can replace those produced by petrochemicals.

Clextral offers a technology centered around three axes to benefit from the advantages of twin screw extrusion applied to biomass: 

  • Component extraction: lead to a dissolution of organic and/or mineral materials in the liquid phase. The solid/liquid separation obtained allows an efficient washing or removal of molecules of interest
  • Fractionation: Increases the accessibility of the biomass components and allows to considerably intensify the pretreatment of the biomass.
  • Mechanical treatment: Wood fibers for peat-free soil mixtures are one of the main products obtained with this innovative extrusion technology.

Come to Bioket 2023 to find out more and discuss your biomass processing projects!
