Biobutanol

The market demand for acetone during World War I led to the production of acetone and butanol by fermentation by Gooderham and Worts.[30] The production company was known as “British Acetones, Toronto Limited,” which used the ABE (acetone-butanol-ethanol fermentation) process in Toronto from May 1916 to November 1918. On April 3, 1919, Sir Albert Edward Gooderham (1861-1935), who had donated the facility and staff to the service of the British government for the war effort, sent a detailed report of his operations to Sir Frederick Lewis Nathan (1861-1933), Director of Propellant Supplies in London; the report began:[31]

I have the honour to submit herewith a report on the work done by the British Acetones Toronto, under the Weizmann process.

The report is lengthy, going into all details, but is well worth more than a casual glance. It sets forth the difficulties met with in making a commercial success of what had been little more than a Laboratory Experiment, and the means employed to overcome these difficulties. On our success I need not elaborate, as our output and exceedingly low percentage of spoiled grain (viz.: less than one-half of one percent) speaks more forcibly than any words of mine can do.

During the first fifteen months of operation, we shipped 2,162,000 pounds of Acetone…

When the Armistice was signed, I received orders to close down immediately. I called my staff together, in my office and thanked them all for the support that they had given the Company, and while thankful that the Great War was over, we all regretted that the very happy relations that had existed between us during the past two and half years was so soon to be served. “They all did their bit.”

Personally, I am most thankful that I had the opportunity of doing something helpful for these brave fellows at the Front.

No commercial biobutanol facilities are operating today
