Direct To Ethanol® Technology
•  Uses sunlight, CO2, saltwater and algae to produce ethanol and othervaluable hydrocarbons via photosynthesis. •  Uses marginal or desert land, produces oxygen and provides fresh water. •  Unlike all other biofuel processes, the main production does not involve biomassharvesting. •  Productivity 6,000 gal/acre-yr; target is 10,000 gal/acre-yr. •  No competition with food, farmland or feedstock supplies.
