- Plant Scaleup Process Engineering Design
Genomatica has developed proprietary technology for the production of BIO-BDO™ (bio-based butanediol). BDO is an intermediate chemical used in the production of sporting equipment, athletic shoes, automotive and electronic applications.
Burns & McDonnell, along with partner Chemtex International, has provided front-end loading 2 (FEL2) engineering services to help Genomatica advance the design of its first commercial plant (45KTA).Services have included significant process development, scaleup, estimating and scheduling.
The FEL2 engineering package provided for a new facility to be constructed at an existing site. It includes all processing, feedstock, offtake, utilities and site infrastructure required for a fully functional, standalone manufacturing facility.
