WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., June 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliance BioEnergy Plus, Inc. (OTCQB:ALLM) (the "Company") announced today the opening of Ek Laboratories, Inc., formally named the Central Florida Institute of Science and Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of AMG Energy Group, which is a subsidiary of the Company.
After completing construction at the end of April 2015 (GlobeNewswire: April 30, 2015) the Company began installing and optimizing its full service analytical laboratory equipment and building its patented CTS Pilot plant. Both operations have been completed this week.
Dr. Richard Blair, inventor of the CTS process and Director of Ek Laboratories, along with Dr. Zhilin Xie began running the CTS process at a 2.5 ton per day scale and achieved conversion of Hay (used as a control due to its similarity to other grasses and legumes) into sugars immediately. The CTS process differs from all other cellulose conversion technologies due to the lack of cellulose pre-treatment, liquid acids, enzymes, applied heat or pressure and long processing times. The patented mechanical process is cost effective, truly green (no emissions or use of hazardous materials) and able to convert virtually any cellulose material into sugars and other fine chemicals in a matter of minutes at a fraction of the cost of other methods. Furthermore because it is a mechanical/chemical process and modular design it can be scaled to meet the needs of the end user whether that is 1,000’s of tons a day or on the back of a truck for remote feedstock locations.
In the newly completed lab, Dr. Peter Cohen began testing the equipment and running analytics on the newly converted sugars. With the HP Gas Chromatograph, JEOL DART Mass Spectrometer, Finnigan Ion Spectrometer, Waters Micromass with electrospray ionization, UV-VIS detection and MS-MS capabilities plus several methods of separation including gas and liquid chromatography, filtration and centrifugation, this world class lab has more capabilities than most universities. In addition, the lab is equipped for wet chemistry with chemical storage, gases, soxhlett extraction, distillation, reflux and gravimetric analysis.
Ek Laboratories will not only be the quality control center for the CTS process around the world, it will also be a profit center and operate as an independent lab capable of a wide range of analysis for industrial materials, pharmaceuticals, fuels, gases, pesticides, pollutants, sugars, perfumes, lipids, fatty acids and a wide range of other materials and industries.
