SunEthanol is biofuel technology startup focused on commercializing technology developed by University of Massachusetts researcher Dr. Susan Leschine and her team. Dr. Leschine discovered a bacteria dubbed the Q Microbe. The Q Microbe has the advantage of being able to digest many different cellulosic feed-stocks and combining what would be multiple steps with other bacteria into a single stage process.

The bacteria has the potential to drastically reduce the cost and complexity producing cellulosic ethanol. SunEthanol has just received a first round of venture capital funding from VeraSun Energy, Battery Ventures, Long River Ventures and AST Capital to further their research and development work.
