Joule Selects Texas for Ethanol Facility

1/12/10

Joule Biotechnologies, a Cambridge, MA-based developer of fuels and chemicals in a process that mimics photosynthesis, today confirmed a newspaper report in the Leander Ledger from last month that it is leasing property in Leander, TX, for its pilot ethanol plant. A company spokeswoman said that the lease on the property near Austin became official this week. Xconomy reported last month that Joule had selected a site for the pilot plant, but the firm had declined to reveal the exact location before the lease was finalized.

    And water. Joule needed water and sun. I am glad to have a green technology company here in Leander, Texas.
