Biodico, Inc. and LamdaGen Corporation have announced a collaboration whereby LamdaGen's nano-based Meta-Catalytic Surface (MCS) technology will be integrated into Biodico's Research & Development programs for biomass-based diesel, combined heat and power, and biochemicals. Additional LamdaGen technologies will be incorporated into Biodico's ongoing R&D programs which also developed the game changing ARIES(C) Technology (Automated Real-time, Remote, Integrated Energy System) under the auspices of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Navy. The CRADA formally commenced on May 1, 2002. Biodico is located at the National Environment Technology Test Site on Naval Base Ventura County, California.

Biodico President & Founder Russ Teall commented, "We look forward to our collaboration with LamdaGen and the potential that MCS technology brings to further develop clean energy production for both biofuels and combined heat and power." Teall added, "The R&D currently funded by the California Energy Commission at our biorefinery at Naval Base Ventura should dove-tail ideally with LamdaGen's technologies."

"We are excited to be collaborating with Biodico in applying our MCS nano-technology to the energy sector," said Randy Storer, CEO and Co-Founder of LamdaGen Corporation. "We manufacture highly catalytic functional nanomaterials in the form of continuous metallic thin films that can be economically manufactured and tuned for specific applications relevant to bio-energy," he added. "Biodico is an ideal partner for us to move forward with."
