gulf alternative energyGulf Alternative Energy Corporation (GAEC) recently announced the lab test results on its biomass pre-processing technology that converts cellulosic biomass into a fine, dry powder for processing into ethanol.

GAEC reports that testing conducted by Microbac Laboratories of Colorado Lab “showed that all sugars were produced from Gulf Sorghum in 16 hours compared to 64 hours for unprocessed control samples. This is a 400% increase in processing speed under controlled lab conditions.”

John Shearer, President of GAEC, said, “This test lays to rest any questions regarding the validity and value of Gulf’s process to development of the cellulosic ethanol industry.”
