Ethanol partnership

By Chemical Engineering |

Mascoma Corp. (Cambridge, Mass.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6894-545) and Royal Nedalco (Bergen op Zoom, Netherlands) have signed a license and joint-development agreement with the goal of commercializing ethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass. Nedalco has developed modified yeasts that can produce ethanol from all kinds of lignocellulosic biomass, including straw and wood waste. This yeast technology will be used in a biomass-to-ethanol demonstration plant that Mascoma plans to build in Rochester, N.Y. (CE, February, p. 17).
