Purdue's Brains Ferments Business

Purdue startup marketing ethanol yeast
An Indiana biotechnology company announced yesterday that it has begun producing a genetically modified yeast that promises to make it easier and faster to turn corn cobs, wood chips and a host of agricultural wastes into ethanol.

Green Tech America Inc. of West Lafayette said its modified yeast ferments both major forms of sugar - glucose and xylose - involved in creating cellulosic ethanol from plant matter.
Adn what keeps Indiana from more businesses like this?
