Plant Front-End Engineering for New Biorefining Process
AMG was hired to finalize design concepts for a processing plant in Ontario, Canada that would convert farm waste into sugar. The plant utilizes new, patented technology to convert straw biomass into glucose sugar.
AMG’s task was to define the details required to bring that concept to reality. AMG delivered a stage 3 Front-End-Loading (FEL-3) engineering report that included plant and equipment specifications, project execution plans, and a capital estimate.
The new plant utilizes many complex systems, including chemical reactor, compressed air, filtration, liquid-solid separation, material handling, and milling systems.
