Toyota has a Breakthrough in Ethanol Production
Toyota has already brought us many hybrid variants of Toyota Prius available at Toyota Of Wallingford, located at 859 North Colony Rd, Wallingford CT. But they are only starting with electric - they want to be remembered for more advancements in fuel consumption.
The auto maker is looking into a better ethanol. New yeast being developed that will more efficiently ferments xylose, sugar produced when plant fibers break down, basically creating a super fuel.
This newly developed yeast produces the highest ethanol fermentation level known to human kind, and is capable of improving bio-fuel quality while also reducing production costs. Plans to perfect this ethanol, along with making ethanol a widely available commodity, are set to be completed by 2020.
The Toyota Biotechnology and Afforestation Laboratory is also developing a "cool-spot creation technology" for simulating the cooling effects of shade created by trees to be used in cars.1
