SEKAB and Taurus Energy are jointly collaborating on the research and development of processes to produce ethanol from cellulose, and primarily on the development of pentose fermenting yeast strains.

We have tested Taurus Energy’s specially developed yeast strains that ferment carbohydrates common in cellulose a number of times in the Ethanol Pilot, SEKAB’s demonstration plant. The fermentation of these carbohydrates to alcohol is an important part of the work in creating a commercial process for the production of cellulosic ethanol. Together, SEKAB and Taurus Energy have shown that yeast strains function on an industrial scale.
