Monrovia Company Gets Grant to Make Aviation Fuel From Plants

Monrovia-based Invizyne Technologies (140 W Chestnut Ave.) has received a $3.77 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to support Invizyne's project to optimize and scale up isobutanol production, a potential sustainable aviation fuel. This follows a successful $2.08 million project converting cellulosic sugars to isobutanol. The sustainable aviation fuel market is projected to reach $27.4 billion by 2032.

CEO Mo Hayat said the company's method of making valuable chemicals from plant-based energy sources can reduce the pollution associated with traditional production methods. Details.
