Past EventHow New Mexico Companies are Pursuing Biofuels Opportunities

Biofuels News and Activities in New Mexico

In May we will hear from an exciting panel of speakers on all the latest activity in biofuels in New Mexico. This event will be co-sponsored by NMBio, Los Alamos National Laboratory and the New Mexico Consortium.


Sponsor Introduction: Katherine Chartrand, Executive Director, The New Mexico Consortium
The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) is a non-profit corporation formed by the three New Mexico Universities under a teaming agreement with The University of California (UC) to partner with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to advance scientific research and education in New Mexico. 

David Glass, Director of Regulatory Affairs, Joule Unlimited Technologies
Joule is pioneering the production of Liquid Fuel from the Sun™
More than a promising technology, Joule® is advancing a platform for renewable fuel and chemical production that is expected to eclipse the scale, productivity and cost efficiency of any known alternative to fossil fuel today.

Paul Laur, Chief Executive Officer, Eldorado Biofuels
Eldorado Biofuels is in the process of setting up a demonstration facility, which will showcase our model for treating industrial waste water, originating from the oil and gas fields in the Southwest.

Luke Spangenburg, Chief Executive Officer, New Solutions Energy Corporation
New Solutions Energy offers complete component systems to support algae production from the lab to the field and are designed for operating in urban or remote environments. Our team matches water sources with algae strains and protocols for optimum production. NSE systems can be operated in most environments year round for a multitude of algae applications from nutritional products to fuel.

Steve Strohl, VP Engineering, BioProcess Diagnostics
BioProcess Diagnostics is developing a novel matrix assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometer (MS) capable of obtaining spectra from single microalgae cells.  The instrument can be used to continuously monitor manufacturing processes obtaining unique spectra from up to 100 organisms per second, providing strain level information on microalgae and contamination.  This “single-particle MALDI” technique can potentially provide real-time, quantitative information on intracellular lipids.

John Elling, Chief Executive Officer, Incitor Inc.
Incitor Inc. turns renewable waste biomass into valuable products: fuel additives, petrochemical replacements and specialty chemicals. Expert in furan chemistry and homogeneous organic catalysis, Incitor has created novel patent-pending technology to convert biomass of all types into new energy dense fuels and chemicals.
