Firms to Jointly Develop Cellulosic Ethanol Plants in New York
Nov. 29, 2006 - Tamarack Energy, Inc., of Essex, Connecticut and Mascoma Corp. announced today an agreement to collaborate on the joint development of cellulosic ethanol facilities in New York, as well as follow-on opportunities in Pennsylvania and New England states, leveraging wood mills and other production facilities.
"Mascoma has assembled a formidable powerhouse of technical talent that, when integrated with the Tamarack Energy team's biomass project development, wood procurement, engineering, construction and facility operations experience, strategically positions us to lead the commercialization of ethanol production from cellulosic biomass," said Tamarack Energy President Derek Amidon.
"Given the number of sites across the northeast with access to cellulosic feedstocks, including scrap wood, paper sludge, and other forestry and agricultural biomass, the region is ideal for the renewable energy economic development projects and integrated plants which Tamarack Energy and Mascoma can develop," he added.
Mascoma Corporation is a cellulosic biomass-to-ethanol company with corporate offices in Cambridge, MA, and R&D labs in Hanover, NH.
