Employees to use root-enhanced, native species to enhance greenhouse gas reduction on the local level

Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) October 24, 2009 -- Over forty employees at Qteros, a Marlborough, MA-based biofuels company, are expected to plant trees as part of the International Day of Climate Action, October 24, 2009. Climate Change awareness actions such as this will happen in over 170 countries around the world on that day.

"Planting individual trees is one small step towards reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) and that is part of Qteros' overall mission," says Jon Gorham, a Qteros co-founder who is planting a "super tree" on a 57 acre organic farm and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project. "We hope to make a much larger contribution to reducing GHG emissions once our clean fuel, cellulosic ethanol technology becomes commercial at a cost competitive with gasoline" said Gorham.

Other Qteros employees are planting trees in their backyards, at daycare centers and at schools. Some are memorializing loved ones and others are showing youngsters the importance of a long-term perspective towards climate change.

The transportation sector is responsible in America for producing around 25-30% of GHG emissions according to the U.S. EPA. In addition, DOE national labs calculate that cellulosic ethanol production is 85% less GHG polluting than petroleum. Qteros' core technology is based on the Q-Microbe™, which converts biomass into ethanol in a single step.

The International Day of Climate Action is sponsored by 350.org. That organization is working to inspire the world to rise to the challen
