GLOBAL BIOENERGIES: Bernard Chaud joins Global Bioenergies

EVRY, France, May 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Bioenergies is announcing today that Bernard Chaud has joined its team as Director of Industrial Strategy.

After a career to date split between the chemicals industry (plant manager), the sugar industry (director of biofuels) and the French civil service (ministry of agriculture), Bernard Chaud is joining Global Bioenergies to oversee its Industrial Strategy.

Bernard Chaud commented: "having been in contact with Global Bioenergies for an entire year, I realized that I wanted to join this committed and determined team for the long haul."
Marc Delcourt, Chairman and CEO of Global Bioenergies, added: "Recent progress with the industrialization of our isobutene process has enhanced Global Bioenergies' credentials and attracted interest from the top talents in our industry. We will benefit from Bernard Chaud's invaluable experience and know-how."


Global Bioenergies is one of the few companies worldwide, and the only one in Europe, that is developing a process to convert renewable resources into hydrocarbons through fermentation. The Company initially focused its efforts on the production of isobutene, one of the most important petrochemical building blocks that can be converted into fuels, plastics, organic glass and elastomers. Global Bioenergies continues to improve the performances of its process, operates its industrial pilot and has begun the construction of its demo plant. The company also replicated its achievement to propylene and butadiene, two members of the gaseous olefins family, key molecules at the heart of petrochemical industry.
