Company Summary

Two aspects of this project differ from other cellulose start ups. 1) We are vertically integrated from growing the biomass on leased land to selling the ethanol to fuel terminals. 2) Our design uses a continuous pretreatment process, resulting in lower operating costs. Our techniques & equipments come from proven processes that we have been employing in the oil fields for years. We have 4 years of data to prove that our process works.
