Mass. Biofuel Co. Increases Cellulosic Ethanol Yield Above DOE's Threshold for Commercial Production

A Massachusetts-based biofuel company called Qteros, formerly known as SunEthanol, has announced an ethanol yield well beyond what the U.S. Department of Energy considers the threshold for commercial production using a technology called Q Microbe, which turns biomass into cellulosic ethanol,

Reuters reports that Qteros says it's achieved an ethanol yield of 70 grams per liter. The DOE's commercial standard is 50 grams per liter.
