Sermatec Zanini and GeoSynFuels form strategic alliance for commercialization of cellulosic ethanol technology in Latin America 6 February 2012 Sermatec Zanini, one ofthe largest EPC companies in Brazil specializing in sugar cane processing, and GeoSynFuels, LLC (GSF) recently formed a strategic alliance for the development and commercialization of GSF’s proprietary cellulosic ethanol technology. The strategic alliance allows Sermatec Zanini toearn an equity position in GeoSynFuels in exchange for engineering services and a future role in the sales and marketing of the technology in Latin America. The initial focus of the strategic alliance will be the construction and operation of a demonstration plant adjacent to a Brazilian sugar cane mill to treat sugar cane bagasse. This activity will set the stage for the commercialization of the technology in Brazil’s well-established sugar cane milling industry. The global annual ethanol potential of the technology is approximately 10 billion gallons with 4.5 billion gallons of that being centrally located in Brazil, according to the partners. GSF is a private, US-based company that has developed an economic method for the production of biofuels and biochemicals (including cellulosic ethanol and acetic acid). This technology “bolts-on” to existing sugar cane processing facilities (or other biomass facilities) and enables the production of significant incremental ethanol at low cost, according to GSF. Biochemical and biofuel pathways. The 5CS pathway is represented at the bottom. Source: GSF. Click to enlarge. The 5CS Technology provides a plug-and-play ethanol package to existing biomass aggregators such as sugar cane processors and pulp mills. The process has the potential to provide new coproduct ethanol revenues to both industries. Additionally, the 5CS process has the potential to be applied to the front-end of biomass-to-energy facilities including applications such as cogenerationand pellet plants. The 5CS process extracts only the hemicellulose from the sugar cane residue (bagasse) or wood for conversion into ethanol while leaving the feedstock relatively unaltered and suitable for its original usage, combustion or paper making. The foundation of the technology is the ability to economically extract and convert the hemicellulose-based sugars. The new venture will be managed through GSF’s wholly owned Brazilian subsidiary, TenX Biofuels Participações Ltda (TXB), which has been granted a royalty-free exclusive license to the 5CS Technology.

InEnTec manufactures equipment used to transform waste products into energy. The Company's plasma-enhanced melter equipment rearranges the molecular structure of waste and transforms it into alternative transportation fuels, electricity and products used in manufacturing.
Evolutionary Genomics (EG) is a biotechnology company focusing on how relevant gene/target discovery and validation is performed during the post-genomics era. The company's Adapted Traits platform sifts through vast amounts of genomic data to identify only those genes that have a high likelihood of commercial value for downstream validation. EG applies this platform to identify high-value targets for drug-discovery or genes for use in natural crop yield or pest/disease-resistance enhancement.
Inventure Chemical has developed processes for the direct, efficient production of industrial bio-chemicals and fuels from materials such as algae, agricultural by-products and waste biomass.
Lynntech, Inc. is a College Station, TX based company that has received a grant(s) from the Department of Energy's SBIR/STTR program. The abstract(s) for these grant award(s) are provided as well since they provide insights into Lynntech, Inc.'s business and areas of expertise. The amount of energy stored and the efficiency of nickel-metal hydride batteries, such as those used with intermittent renewable energy sources is limited by the use of a liquid electrolyte. This project will develop a solid hydroxide electrolyte suitable for use in high powered batteries. This project will develop a catalyst to cost-effectively transform renewable sources of energy, such as fats and oils to biodiesel. This technology will reduce the United States' dependence on foreign oil and result in a net decrease in carbon dioxide emissions. This project will address the processing of heavy crude and increase limited, large scale refineries. This project will enable the cost effective refining of heavy crude in the Nation's small refineries as well, which are critical to meeting the Nation's liquid fuel supply. This project will develop a new method for harvesting algae containing bio-oils for biofuel production. This process will enable cost-effective production of advanced biofuels such as biodiesel, green diesel, green gasoline, and green jet fuel reducing our nation's dependence on foreign oil. Magnet harvesting of algae offers the prospect of a significant reduction in the cost of harvesting high oil content algae for biofuel use. Combined with algae's high fuel per acre yield, this can increase the availability of cost effective biofuels. This project will identify infrastructure problems and system requirements to design and fabricate an affordable, safe and energy efficient home hydrogen fueling appliance. It is targeted to meet hydrogen refueling needs of the average US traveler on a daily basis and has potential application as backup power source in emergencies. This project will develop technology that will produce aviation fuels from algae-derived biodiesel, which has significant energy density to be used an alternative transportation fuel source. This project aims to develop an innovative biomass preprocessing system to improve overall bioenergy production efficiency by utilizing an environmentally-friendly approach. The broadbased capabilities of this technology will enable it to perform multiple tasks in a single unit of operation. Renewable fuels from biological feedstocks such as ethanol and biodiesel have been recognized as attractive renewable energy sources; however, the inherently high production costs of these fuels have hampered their widespread application. This project will produce highly efficient catalysts for refining of biological feedstocks offers high efficiency and low-cost production. This project will develop a novel diesel fuel reformer which will provide high quality fuel gas to a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) system with high efficiency and low system complexity. The system will enable SOFC Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) in the 1 - 5 kW range to become economically viable.
