Paris, January 16, 2014 - DEINOVE Alternext Paris: ALDEI, a cleantech company that designs and develops new industrial production processes based on the exploitation of Deinococcus bacteria has managed to produce 9% ethanol with unparalleled performance thanks to its exclusive production process.
For several years now, the global biofuels industry has resolutely turned towards 2nd generation biofuels, i.e. from non-food biomass.
So far, no process has been able to harness lignocellulosic biomass in an economically competitive way.
DEINOVE shows that its bacterial process is suitable for converting this type of biomass to biofuel and should offer industrial production costs fall in line with market expectations.
With the DEINOL project initiated in 2009 and partly financed by Bpifrance (French Innovation Bank), DEINOVE paves the way for a renewable, responsible and profitable alternative to oil and gas fossil fuels.
