High-octane gasoline produced from non-food biomass
Source : biofuelreview.com
A high-octane "green gasoline", using non-food biomass as a feedstock, has been manufactured using the MixAlco(TM) technology to pre-treat and ferment biomass by Terrabon, L.L.C. According to a statement released by the company today (28th July) the process yielded organic salts, which were first converted to ketones and then to high-octane gasoline. The MixAlco technology is licensed by Terrabon from Texas A&M University. "The production of green gasoline is the culmination of 15 years of research and testing by our team", said Gary W. Luce, Terrabon Chief Executive Officer. "It is an important milestone both for Terrabon and for the development of renewable energy resources that can lower our nation's dependence on fossil fuels. With the successful production of green gasoline, Terrabon has taken the technology risk off the table, and we can now intensify our focus on the engineering issues of improving yield and purity across each step of the process."
