Technology

Xylogenics, Inc has created a proprietary bioengineered yeast strain that has the ability to breakdown cellulose. Experimentation is ongoing with switchgrass, a native prairie grass that can be gown in most of the United States and Canada.

The advantage of the yeast is that it can produce ethanol using a non-food material and that it can increase current production by 30% or possibly more making it very economical.

The strain of yeast can be genetically optimized for specific sources making it possible to use a regional source and produce ethanol where it will be used.
