Alkol Biotech is a research company focused on the development of new plant varieties adapted to the needs of specific bio-based markets such as biofuels. The company adapts plant varieties to grow in colder and drier climates, offering better resistance to pests and diseases, and higher productivities.
This allows the development of healthy biofuel markets in countries which otherwise have to import biomass in order to produce biofuels sustainably.
Alkol Biotech produces a sugarcane variety developed by EUnergyCane. The variety is a hybrid of naturally occurring sugarcane varieties grown for more than 200 years. The EUnergyCane consortium is a group of companies, universities, and government entities directly involved in the improvement of cold-resistant sugarcane.
