Alliance Bioenergy making progress optimizing the commercial reactor of its cellulose to sugar process

In Florida, Alliance Bioenergy Plus, Inc. recently announced that its subsidiary Ek Laboratories in Longwood, Florida, under the direction of Dr. Richard Blair, Dr. Peter Cohen and Dr. Zhilin Xie, continues to see success in optimizing the commercial reactor of its licensed and patented CTS (cellulose to sugar) Mechanocatalytic process.

Through the dry, mechanical process the Ek Labs team is now achieving a near 70 percent conversion of available sugars from a variety of feedstock’s, in less than 15 minutes, using no liquid acids, applied heat, pressure or enzymes while producing no waste stream and using very little power. This is a breakthrough in cellulose conversion technology and represents a new dawn in renewable manufacturing.

The one-step CTS cellulose conversion process is proving to be extremely efficient, easy to operate and able to process enormous amounts of virtually any cellulose feedstock, in a matter of minutes, into high quality C6 Glucose and C5 Xylose sugars as well as an extremely pure all natural lignin.
