The essential technical challenge facing us, and the world in general, is the complete beneficiation of cellulosic material. We strive to provide viable and practical solution. Therefore, DalinYebo's technology knowhow extends beyond optimising/maximising technical aspects.
For years we have operated pilot plants, situated at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. We didn't only developed new knowhow, but we were also able to verify 'old' theories and observations that were made over the decades by different plant operators.
We have developed and commercialised IP.
We have received prestigious awards and recognition.
On the one hand we have scaled-up processes and managed designs of multi-disciplinary projects.
On the other hand, we make use of this know-how to scale-down industrial size processes, by making use of reverse-engineering principles (e.g. for the µ-BioRefinery™).
Our team is supported by an extensive global network of specialists.
Most importantly, over the 13 years that our team has worked together, we have made mistakes and learnt form them.
Our background and access to inventions and developments give us the tools for smart implementation of industrial processes to convert bio-resources into energy and chemicals. In the first instance we focus on the Complete Conversion of Carbon to Commercial Chemicals, aka ‘C5’ and energy. C5 infers using all the organic components of agricultural by-products or crops, such as sugars, cellulose, hemi-cellulose and lignin and metabolites derived therefrom to produce chemicals through unit processes that it will invent or apply. Only the remaining residue from such process will be converted to energy (steam/electricity).
