Converting cellulose to sugar through the only Patented dry, mechanical/chemical process - “CTS™”.

Created by University of Central Florida's Blair Research Group under the direction of Dr. Richard Blair, and patented by the University, this new technology has been touted as a game changer in the production of sugar, biomass and biofuels. The CTS™ process is a simple, cheap and safe alternative to the current acid or enzymatic based processes that require liquid acids, cellulose pretreatment and long lengths of time to accomplish what the CTS™ process does in minutes - with no waste or hazardous materials, and for a fraction of the cost - when compared to the other processes. read more.

As Biofuel Demand Grows, So Do Guatemala's Hunger Pangs


From the New York Times 2013

GUATEMALA CITY — In the tiny tortillerias of this city, people complain ceaselessly about the high price of corn. Just three years ago, one quetzal — about 15 cents — bought eight tortillas; today it buys only four. And eggs have tripled in price because chickens eat corn feed.

Félix Pérez used to grow corn, beans and fruit behind his home. He now rents a hillside plot. Meanwhile, in rural areas, subsistence farmers struggle to find a place to sow their seeds. On a recent morning, José Antonio Alvarado was harvesting his corn crop on the narrow median of Highway 2 as trucks zoomed by.
