  Renewable jet fuel Houston-based bioenergy company Terrabon Inc. (www.terrabon.com) has been awarded a $9.6-million, 18-month contract from Logos Technologies (Arlington, Va.; www.logos-technologies) to produce 6,000 L of renewable jet fuel for the Defense Advanced Research Products Agency (DARPA; Arlington, Va.; www.darpa.mil) using its MixAlco biorefining process. The MixAlco process converts nonsterile, nonfood biomass to organic acids, alcohols, ketones and other chemicals that can be further processed into renewable hydrocarbon fuels. The customized production process, to be constructed at Terrabon’s Bryan, Tex. demonstration facility, employs proprietary Terrabon technology that allows the non-sterile anaerobic digestion of feedstocks, such as municipal solid waste, sewage sludge, woodchips and others, to occur at low cost. Organic solar cells Last month, Konarka Technologies (Lowell, Mass.; www. konarka.com) formed strategic alliances with several German companies to integrate its organic photovoltaic (OPV) technology into building facades. ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe AG (Duisburg, Germany; www.thyssenkrupp-steel-europe.com) plans to integrate Konarkas cells into steel roof and facades, thereby producing a multifunctional…
