  1. Biorefinery Process Economics

    CEP Magazine article, October 2005

    With oil and natural gas prices surging, bio-based feedstocks are becoming increasingly competitive. This article examines, in depth, the technical and economic aspects of the biorefinery concept.

  2. CEP: Catalyzing Commercialization - Living Plants: One-Stop Shop for Protein Manufacturing

    CEP Magazine article, July 2014

    Chemical manufacturing facilities housing green plants perform all of the processes formerly handled by stainless steel equipment. Production is energy efficient, fueled by photosynthesis, as living plants secrete raw materials (e.g., high-purity spider silk proteins) for downstream production and processing. Thanks to Wisconsin-based ag-biotech startup PhylloTech, this surreal vision may not be so far-fetched.
