Blue BioFuels, Inc. (PINK: BIOF), is a publicly traded company focusing on Green energy and renewable technologies. Blue Biofuels developed a new and improved technology system that converts virtually any plant material — grasses, wood, paper, farm waste, yard waste, forestry products, fruit casings, nut shells, and the cellulosic portion of municipal solid waste — into sugars and subsequently into biofuels without the use of enzymes or liquid acids. We call this the CTS process, where CTS stands for Cellulose to Sugar. The cellulose is converted into sugar and lignin. The sugar is further converted into bio-ethanol and other biofuels.
Competitiveness of Our Technology
Blue Biofuels CTS process is a mechanical-chemical process that, unlike other cellulosic conversion processes, does not use any expensive and slow converting enzymes in the conversion of cellulose into its components of sugar and lignin. We use a very inexpensive catalyst that is recycled.
CTS process is environmentally friendly: 100% renewable, 100% recycled water, no toxic chemicals, and an almost zero carbon footprint.
Blue Biofuels expects to be able to produce cellulosic ethanol using CTS process at a significantly lower cost than any other cellulosic process and even at a lower cost than ethanol from corn due to the fact that our feedstock (either tall grasses or waste product) is much less expensive than corn.
In addition, Blue Biofuels is actively exploring other “green” or renewable technologies that are beyond the development stage for possible acquisition or strategic partnerships.
