Using a two-step distillation process, Alliance BioEnergy Plus Inc. of West Palm Beach recently completed the first of three phases for official ethanol production qualification, advancing the company’s command of the patented procedure.
On behalf of its unnamed client, Alliance announced that it effectively showed the firm’s senior management the step-by-step process by which protein and oil are extracted from “distillers grain” prior to obtaining sugar from the remaining fiber material; then converting the sugar into cellulosic ethanol, a biofuel produced from wood, grasses, or other inedible parts of plants — similar to corn-derived ethanol and yielding a clean-burning, high-octane fuel.
Anticipating proof that the following phases are slated for success, Alliance plans to initiate Phases 2 and 3 in the next few months of 2016. The company expects to enter into a joint venture agreement with one of the large manufacturers studying the outcome of its process, but is also in active negotiations with other producers variously located in Colombia, Grenada, Canada and Honduras.
Alliance BioEnergy Plus Inc. is a publicly traded company currently exploring green technologies to advance from development stage to commercial use via acquisition or strategic partnerships. Its patented cellulose conversion technology functions via a master license agreement with the University of Central Florida.
