Proterro adds Edi Eliezer to the executive team

EWING, US: Proterro Inc, the only company making sugar instead of extracting it from crops, has added to its executive team Edi Eliezer, as the company’s engineering vice president, effective 1 February 2013. Eliezer joins Proterro with three decades in industrial bioengineering, with expertise in biochemicals and biofuels, and deep commercial operations experience in bioprocess development, fermentation systems, bioreactor design, facility engineering, scale-up and downstream/upstream process integration.

“We are on track to pilot a full-scale photobioreactor and completing designs for a demonstration-scale facility this year and Edi is the perfect person to develop and execute the plan. His wide and deep ‘concept to construction’ and ‘lab to production’ experience in bioindustry around the world is exactly what is needed,” said Kef Kasdin, CEO, Proterro.

“These engineered cyanobacteria, which require a combination of only water, carbon dioxide, sunlight and nutrients to produce sucrose in a biosynthetic process at consistently high yields, are what make us different from our perceived competitors. With our recent funding, expanded executive team and the patent issuance, Proterro is making great progress in developing the answer to the high cost of feedstock,” added Kasdin.
