University of Florida Develops Cellulosic Ethanol Green Gold for Clean Energy
Half the automotive fuel in the United States could be replaced with ethanol from renewable agricultural and forest waste, says a University of Florida researcher who has developed a biotechnology “bug” that converts biomass such as sugarcane residues, rice hulls, forestry and wood wastes and other organic materials into ethanol.Lonnie Ingram, a professor of microbiology with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences has genetically engineered a stratin of E.Coli that produces fuel ethanol from non-edible sugar sources at an estimated cost of $1.30 gallon. Converting this to fuel ethanol could replace half of all imported petroleum in the United States.Video originally aired on Eco- Tech and is property of the Science Channel. http://science.discovery.com/tv-schedules/series.html?paid=48.13780.122449.34341.1Learn more about Cellulosic Ethanol by visiting http://www.ufl.edu/spotlight/ingram.htmlLearn More About Clean Energy opportunities in Florida at:http://www.eflorida.com/CleanEnergy
