Trumatech announced today they are focusing on how to develop more efficient ways to convert lignocellulose to biofuels such as ethanol and butanol.
Online PR News – 13-April-2010 – – Trumatech has launced a multifaceted, collaborative research and development effort designed to improve the efficiency of biofuel production.
Dr. Abood will lead an innovative research program designed to improve the efficiency of conversion of the cellulosic biomass to biofuels. Making use of microorganisms that thrive at very high temperatures in natural hot springs, the research team will be “bioprospecting” for new enzymes that will allow the conversion to take place at high temperatures.
"The goal is to utilize stable, high-temperature enzymes that will increase the process efficiency, minimize contamination and facilitate the isolation of purified fuel product by evaporation," said Peter Cennamo, CEO of Trumatech.
Trumatech is a developer and marketer of high quality energy efficient environmental technology, from energy management controls for freeze protection and temperature management applications to pressurization systems for satellite and microwave transmission lines. The alternative energy methods of production include waste to energy, farming of green algae and bio-mass and bio-fuels production. Trumatech has over 15 years of experience.Trumatech is located in Houston, Texas.
