Butagaz and Global Bioenergies today announce the signing of an exclusive partnership for France to incorporate bio-isobutene into butane and propane. Butagaz will contribute financially to Global Bioenergies’ industrial development, in return for reserved batches of isobutene: starting in 2017, Global Bioenergies’ demo plant will produce several batches for delivery to Butagaz. In the longer term, Butagaz has the potential to purchase thousands of tonnes of bio-isobutene when the first commercial plant comes on stream. Part of this “made-in-France” bio-isobutene could then be incorporated into Butagaz’s bottles or tanks of butane and propane.
From 2017, Global Bioenergies and Butagaz will conduct a joint technical and economic study to examine the large-scale incorporation of renewable components for the butane and propane sectors.
