Mascoma is a cellulosic biomass-to-ethanol company using advanced biotechnology across a range of non-food feedstocks to dramatically reduce the cost of cellulosic ethanol production. The company’s Consolidated Bio-Processing (CBP) technology promises to dramatically reduce both of the major cost elements in producing cellulosic ethanol: capital and enzyme costs. CBP avoids the need for costly production of cellulose enzymes by using engineered microorganisms that produce cellulases and ethanol at high yield in a single step. Mascoma was acquired by Lallemand, Inc.
