BioGasol, which is developing technology for the production of second generation bioethanol has gained a listing on the prestigious Red Herring Global 100 for 2008
BioGasol, a Danish biotechnology and engineering company which is developing technology for the production of second generation bioethanol (made from waste biomass instead of food crops), has acquired a timely feather in its cap with a listing on the prestigious Red Herring Global 100 for 2008. The listing is widely regarded by technology industry investors and observers as a definitive list of the top 100 tech start-ups in the world. Global 100 winners of the past include Google, EBay and YouTube.
 
In an article in financial daily newspaper Børsen, BioGasol's business development director Niels Langvad comments: "We are naturally very pleased and proud of this award that puts Biogasol up among the very best. It demonstrates that BioGasol is one of the world's most innovative and interesting companies.
 
BioGasol's aim is to produce bioethanol in a sustainable way that competes fully on price with oil-derived fuels. Its fermentation process uses proprietary microorganisms that can convert both 6-carbon (hexose) and 5-carbon (pentose) sugars from cellulosic biomass material to optimize ethanol yield.
 
BioGasol's process has been in operation since late 2006 at a pilot plant in Copenhagen. The company is currently developing its own demonstration plant in Denmark, as well as a 10 million litre integrated plant in Oregon, USA in collaboration with Pacific Ethanol. Both plants are scheduled to start production this year.
