About Pursuit Dynamics

By way of background, in 2006 Pursuit commenced an intensive research programme to enhance ethanol yields in the pre-treatment stage of conventional (starch to ethanol) bioethanol production by using modified PDX reactors. By September 2006 yield equivalents considerably in excess of those produced by current technologies were being achieved. To give some insight into the scale of the programme undertaken by Pursuit at its Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire facility during 2006 and 2007, the trial series covered almost 500 individual trial runs during which 3,500 samples were taken for analysis. The programme employed ten of our personnel on a full time basis for its duration. In December 2007 the system was successfully tested at a respected independent pilot facility in the US Midwest.

--  In 2007, the 139 operating bioethanol plants in the US reached an
    annualized capacity of over 7.8 billion gallons. In 2008, a further 4
    billion gallons of capacity will come online from 68 refineries under
    construction or expanding. With the completion of existing construction
    projects the US bioethanol industry will have a capacity in excess of 13
    billion gallons, or almost 10% of the nation's gasoline demand. (source:
