BIO DISPERSIS LC - Recycle vinasse, a polluting residue from the alcohol industry, into organic additives for concrete
Highly water pollutant and difficult to dispose of, Bio DisperSis allows vinasse to be transformed for use as a more environmentally-friendly alternative to lignosulfonates used in concrete production.
Lignosulfonates are traditionally used to make concrete with less water, making it stronger, while allowing it to continue to flow. The Bio DisperSis process generates a dispersing base for the concrete admixture that is cheaper and has a lower carbon footprint than using lignosulfonates. As many countries in the Americas lack clear regulation on the disposal of vinasses, this solution prevents the highly pollutant waste material from being dumped in waterways, and allows for a local production of a cement additive that is otherwise imported from Europe.
