Xethanol hires three scientists

In late May, Xethanol Corp. announced that three University of Georgia engineering professors had signed consulting contracts with the company. The research programs of all three scientists-Elliot Altman, director of the Center for Molecular Bioengineering; Thomas Adams, director of the outreach service of the faculty of engineering; and Mark Eiteman, professor of engineering-involve biomass fuel production. Although their roles as consultants were still being defined at press time, the researchers are expected to focus on determining the commercial viability of bakery-waste-to-ethanol technology.
