Qteros announces 15x improvement in cellulosic ethanol yield

Moreover, they just got $25 million in funding from investors including George Soros and big oil.

Qteros can use woody biomass and fast-growing grasses as feedstocks. The company says its patented Q Microbe technology is naturally able to convert different forms of plant material directly into ethanol in a period of about four days.

The potential for cellulosic ethanol is enormous.
