Nexant Analyzes Next-Generation Sugar Technologies

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--

Nexant today announced the release of an assessment of next-generation and cellulosic sugar technologies. This new Nexant report-Cellulosic Sugars: Unlocking Biomass' Potential-examines the different technology choices available.

"Cellulosic and other next-generation sugar processes are becoming technically robust, although commercial challenges remain to be overcome," said Steven Slome, Nexant Senior Consultant. "Commercialization will allow bio-production of various chemicals and fuels, without provoking controversy via the food versus fuels debate and may potentially offer a lower cost feedstock."

The cellulosic sugars industry, as technical issues are solved, is now faced with a number of challenges and opportunities. Nexant's report answers the following questions:

  • What technologies are available and where are they in the development process
  • What biofeedstocks are available regionally
  • Are new investments in next-generation sugars a viable solution and will they result in a new paradigm for the sector
  • Who are the key developers What technologies are they utilizing
  • How are production economics impacted by regional and feedstock differences

In addressing these issues, the report builds on Nexant's technical expertise and extensive knowledge in the area of commercial and emerging biotechnology.

Cellulosic Sugars: Unlocking Biomass' Potential is available immediately. For more information on this and other Nexant reports, please visit: or contact Steven Slome at
