Hyrax and Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation announce licensing agreement for biomass to biofuel technology

October 22, 2012 |

In Wisconsin, Hyrax Energy and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation announced a joint licensing agreement for a patent-pending renewable chemical and biofuel production method developed by University of Wisconsin–Madison biochemistry professor and a Hyrax founder, Ron Raines. The technology uses ionic liquids to transform cellulosic biomass, such as corn stover, into renewable fuels and high-value chemicals without using enzymes or pretreatment. The process was developed with support from the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center on the UW–Madison campus.
