SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, US: LS9 Inc in conjunction with partner HCL CleanTech Ltd has received a $9 million grant from the Department of Energy (DOE) to improve and demonstrate an integrated process to convert biomass feedstocks into fermentable sugars and then into diesel and other fuel and chemical products. As part of the DOE grant, LS9 and HCL CleanTech are combining their proprietary technologies to produce drop-in advanced biofuels and other valuable bio-based chemicals from wood waste and other agriculture waste, commonly referred as ‘biomass’.

“We are pleased with this award and look forward to working with our grant partner, HCL Cleantech, to deliver a successful integrated project. Demonstrating compatibility and integration of LS9’s broad technology platform with next generation biomass based sugar technologies is a key strategic objective for LS9,” said Ed Dineen, President and CEO, LS9.
