TMO introduces process demonstration unit

By | August 04, 2008
TMO Renewables Ltd., headquartered in the United Kingdom, has opened a pilot-scale ethanol plant near Surry, England. The aim of the facility is to demonstrate the core efficacy of the ethanol fermentation process using TMO's unique thermophilic bacteria, in particular how quickly the bacteria can produce ethanol under elevated heat. "The reason the organism is particularly useful is that it has a very broad appetite," said TMO Renewables Chief Executive Officer Hamish Curran.
