Develop breakthrough technologies that expand use of sustainable fuel. Vertimass LLC seeks to develop and widely license breakthrough technologies that substantially expand the use of sustainable transportation fuels that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy security and domestic economies.
Low cost production of sustainable transportation fuels from ethanol for new aircraft, heavy and light duty vehicles, and chemical markets. Widespread use of low cost sustainable transportation fuels for aircraft and heavy and light duty vehicles from multiple sources of biomass on a large scale.
Overcome the blend wall limiting ethanol use in light duty vehicles and access new ethanol markets for air travel, heavy duty vehicles, and chemicals. To overcome the blend wall limiting ethanol use in light duty vehicles and open up new markets for air travel, heavy duty vehicles, and chemicals, expand to new facilities. Improve and demonstrate novel technologies that provide commercially viable lifetimes and yields and widely license the technology to rapidly expand its impact. Initially integrate the technology into existing facilities for rapid market penetration and expand to new facilities that use cellulosic biomass as commercial application of that technology expands.
Successful development and rapid deployment of groundbreaking Vertimass liquid fuels technology will:
- Introduce ethanol into new biofuels markets, significantly expanding their impact
- Provide a new source of fuels to reduce strategic vulnerability.
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Reduce oil imports from unstable regions of the world
