Clariant is a globally leading specialty chemicals company, based in Muttenz, Switzerland. Clariant has developed the sunliquid process which uses enzymatic hydrolysis followed by fermentation to efficiently and sustainably produce cellulosic ethanol from agricultural residues such as wheat straw, corn stover or sugarcane bagasse. Clariant has been operating Germany’s largest cellulosic ethanol plant in Straubing since 2012. In September 2017, Clariant signed its first license agreement for sunliquid® with Enviral, the largest producer of bioethanol in Slovakia, which will produce cellulosic ethanol at an annual production capacity of 50000 tons. In October that same year, Clariant decided to invest in a new full-scale commercial plant based on its sunliquid technology in Romania.
