Coskata has a plant in operation that turns renewable fuels into ethanol at a price that is competitive with the price of gasoline. No government subsidies are necessary.
What need is there to legislate a reduction in CO2 when the market place is poised to solve the problem anyway?
Coskata is commercializing a proprietary process and related technologies for the conversion of a wide variety of input materials into ethanol. Coskata has an efficient, affordable, and flexible three-step conversion process:
- Incoming material converted to synthesis gas (gasification)
- Fermentation of synthesis gas into ethanol (bio-fermentation)
- Separation and recovery of ethanol (separations)
Ethanol can be manufactured using this cutting edge technology to provide environmental, economic, and national security benefits.
