On March 10, the University of Maryland and Governor Martin O'Malley unveiled an innovative system developed by university professors that breaks down almost any source of biomass, or plant life, and converts it into ethanol.

The technology was developed by university spin-off company, Zymetis Inc., which worked on the system in the Clark School's Technology Advancement Program incubator.

For more information on the technology, please see this related news item.
