By Green Biologics Inc. | December 02, 2015

Green Biologics Ltd., a U.K. based industrial biotechnology and renewable chemicals company, is moving forward with the construction of its 100 percent renewable, biobased n-butanol and acetone manufacturing facility in Little Falls, Minnesota. The existing manufacturing site, formerly known as The Central MN Ethanol Cooperative, was acquired by Green Biologics in December 2014 and re-named Central MN Renewables. Permitting was completed in late August and the construction began on Sept. 1. Commercial production is scheduled to commence in 2016.

“The commencement of this construction project marks a significant milestone in our commitment to becoming a world class renewable specialty chemicals company,” said Sean Sutcliffe, chief executive of Green Biologics, Ltd.

In November, Green Biologics gained membership to the American Chemistry Council and started implementation of a comprehensive Responsible Care initiative.
