Tweet In California, Greenbelt Resources Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiary Diversified Ethanol Corporation announced their investment in a research effort with California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo focused on fermentation testing related to various ethanol production-related feedstocks. The focus of the study is on the efficacy of food waste and sweet potato fermentation […]
Evolva and Cargill report fermentation-based steviol glycosides moving to pilot scale ahead of schedule
Tweet In Switzerland, Evolva Holding and Cargill announced that their development program for fermentation-based steviol glycosides is moving into pilot scale ahead of schedule, potentially making it available for commercialization sooner than expected. Earlier this year, Cargill and Evolva entered into an agreement to jointly develop and commercialize fermentation-based steviol glycosides. Steviol glycosides are the […]
Tweet In Belgium, researchers from the Catholic University of Leuven and VIB have genetically modified yeasts in order to produce ethanol from a wider variety of sugars from biomass and waste, including the elusive pentose. The new yeast strains should increase fermentation efficiency and make second-generation ethanol more economically viable.
Tweet In Maryland, a collaborative effort between Certis U.S.A. L.L.C. and Kaken Pharmaceutical Co., of Tokyo, Japan has led to the availability of Novel fungicide. The new disease control product is intended for use on residential turf, landscapes, fruit trees and vegetable gardens, and will be available at local home and garden centers by year-end […]
Tweet In Minnesota, a high school student is set to make a splash at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ESEF) in Phoenix in May with his research that found how cellulosic ethanol production costs could be reduced as much as 20 cents a gallon by combining hydrolysis and anaerobic fermentation. He used corn […]
Tweet There have been so many projects announced in cellulosic ethanol in the past five years, it’s hard to keep count. But the list of projects that have completed construction at commercial scale, and publicly established the financial structures for deployment at scale — that’s a list of one, Beta Renewables. Though the project is […]
Tweet In California, the fermentation process used to make cordite for bullets and artillery shells during WWI could be used to better ferret sugars found in biomass. A Berkeley Lab has been able to upgrade metabolic pathways for creating transportation fuels close to theoretical yields… up to a gallon of fuel from 16 pounds of […]
Tweet In Colorado, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded Gevo Inc. with U.S. Patent No. 8,283,505 to protect its Integrated Fermentation TechnologyR (GIFTR ). The newly patented technology comprises a proprietary separation unit designed to enable the cost-efficient separation of isobutanol from other fermentation broth components. GIFTR is currently the most […]
Tweet In California, Verenium Corp. and Alexandria Real Estate celebrated the grand opening of Verenium’s new office and laboratory building in the Torrey Pines area of San Diego. The new 60,000 square foot building includes state-of-the-art laboratories, office space designed to support employee creativity and a high-tech fermentation pilot plant for use in bioprocess development […]
Tweet In Massachusetts, Qteros has closed its Chicopee fermentation facility. “The company has made significant advancement in the technology, but there are always these issues of continuing the flow of investment funds,” she said.,” said Susan Leschine, whose research founded the company, told MassLive.com. According to reports, the company’s offices have been locked, and have […]
