Bioreactor will convert CO2 into biomass, Ethanol, Biodiesel

This is yet another technology on the verge of commercialization that promises to improve the energy balance of ethanol. -- Jeffrey Goettemoeller
GreenShift Corporation - Press Room - GS CleanTech Releases Process Demonstration of CO2 Bioreactor Technology: "A 50 million gallon per year dry mill ethanol production facility consumes about 500,000 tons of corn. About one third of this mass exits the dry mill ethanol production process at the fermentation stage in the form of exhaust carbon dioxide.
As applied at a standard dry mill ethanol production facility, GS CleanTech's bioreactor consumes exhaust carbon dioxide and has the potential to significantly enhance the net energy value of corn-derived ethanol processes by producing a number of valuable co-products that can increase plant output and gross margins."
