Proterro: field tests show that 10-cent renewable sugars are feasible

April 6, 2012 |

In Washington, CEO Kef Kasdin observed at the Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference that that Proterro “has successfully and consistently demonstrated high sucrose productivity in its own laboratory, as well as in the field, at two independent greenhouse sites.” The results of the field trials confirmed that Proterro can develop sucrose at a cost, inclusive of capital costs, that is already competitive with today’s cost of alternative sources of sugar, including sugar cane, corn and cellulosic sugars, Kasdin noted. “We continue on a promising path to a less-than-10-cent-per-pound sucrose.”
