Led by a group of researchers including conjoint lecturer and Ethtec senior biotechnologist, Dr. Geoff Doherty , the project will develop an environmentally sustainable process to produce biofuels and other renewable chemicals from crop and forestry wastes. Currently farmers need to decide whether their crops are used for food or fuel production, as ethanol is produced from the valuable food portion, known as ‘first generation technology’ Ethtec technology will eliminate the food versus fuel tension as the process will use the waste streams left behind once the food portion has been harvested from crops, known as ‘second generation technology’, which may also give farmers a second source of...
