Shcreck David James, Balmer Norman Louis: Integrated facility for producing alcohol using homoacidogenic fermentation. Best Energies, Shcreck David James, Balmer Norman Louis, KOTTIS Nick C, January 15, 2009: WO/2009/009322 (109 worldwide citation)

Esters are hydro genated to provide product alcohols such as ethanol. In one aspect, the hydrogenation is conducted to substantially completely react the hydrogen and provide a hydrogenation product containing product alcohol and unreacted ester which is recycled. In another aspect, hydrogen for the ...

Schreck David James, Balmer Norman Louis: Improved indirect process for producing ethanol. Best Energies, Schreck David James, Balmer Norman Louis, KOTTIS Nick C, January 15, 2009: WO/2009/009320 (68 worldwide citation)

Ethanol is produced by an indirect route involving fermentation of carbohydrate under homoacidogenic conditions to form acetic acid; esterifying the acid with primary alcohol containing at least 4 carbons and hydrogenating the ester to form ethanol and to recover primary alcohol for recycle. The pro ...
