GM, Coskata partnership builds on Oklahoma State University biofuels research
Date:1/16/2008

s than one gallon of fresh water per gallon of ethanol produced, according to Coskata.

Corn-based systems typically use three gallons to four gallons of fresh water per gallon of ethanol produced, and enzymatic approaches can use as much as seven gallons of fresh water per gallon of ethanol produced.

Development of the technology licensed to Coskata is the result of OSUs longstanding commitment to biofuels development, said Robert E. Whitson, vice president, dean and director of the universitys Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.

DASNR scientists and engineers have been breeding improved feedstock with an eye toward biofuels development since the early 1990s. Our first cellulosic ethanol team was put together in 1998, and has been making great strides in technology development ever since, Whitson said. Biofuels has come into widespread public consciousness only recently, but weve been addressing renewable energy concerns for many years.

The OSU Biofuels Team quickly became a multi-college, multi-institutional effort, with the current team encompassing scientists and engineers with DASNR; the OSU College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology; the University of Oklahoma and Brigham Young University.

We in the division have long believed and promoted that an interdisciplinary outlook is the best way to develop solutions to the challenges facing society, and solving real-world issues is a vital part of the land-grant mission and the reason why OSU exists, Whitson said.

Vinod Khosla and Advanced Technology Ventures, the leading renewable energy investors in the country, recognized the potential of the work being done by the OSU Biofuels Team and wanted to invest in the technology. The technology was exclusively licensed to Coskata Inc. for the production of biofuels.

The licensing agreement between OSU and Coskata includes the microorganisms used in syngas fermentation, with a compa
