Product / Service
The product concept is a series of enzymes produced using low cost manufacturing techniques leveraging biotechnology and genetic engineering patents and procedures. · Key features include, low cost, and high conversion efficacy · Current status is the capability has been proven in a lab setting, and is ready for scale up to production levels. · Future research will enable creation and modification of enzyme cocktails for additional feedstock materials (corn, sugarcane, citrus waste, algae, etc.) · Our products will be sold to refineries and enzyme wholesalers throughout the US and North America initially, then aggressively be introduced to South America and Asia, followed by Europe. · Our products will reduce the cost of producing a gallon of fuel by 2 to 3 cents per gallon. · The basis of this technology was published in the Plant Biology Journal in 2009 under the title “Chloroplast-derived enzyme cocktails hydrolyze lignocellulosic biomass and release fermentable sugars”
According to the Ethanol Renewable Fuels Association, there are 202 nameplate refineries capable of producing 13,131.4 MGY which are only producing 11,930.4 MGY. There are 1,432 MGY additional capacities planned at these refineries. Currently 91.28% of all ethanol is produced from corn, millet or barley. However RFS2 requirements by the EPA push 3rd Generation ethanol feedstock including pine, agricultural waste and algae will account for 50% of the 16BGPY production goals by 2016. The target market includes all cellulosic biofuel refineries that use enzymes supplied by one of the few commercial producers of enzymes for this purpose. Enzyme costs are typically $1.00 per gallon of fuel produced. Enzymes manufactured using our process will cost less to manufacture and the cost savings can be shared with plant operators. Initial cost savings have suggested a cost savings to less than 50 cents per gallon produced. GRES Branded enzymes will generate a reduction in the cost of enzymes by up to 1/2 of competitive pricing and increase conversion efficacy by up to 300%, saving a 10M GPY ethanol plant up to $5,000,000 per year in enzyme costs.
