DuPont Danisco Cellulosic Ethanol LLC is a 50/50 joint venture between DuPont and Genencor, a subsidiary of Danisco.[1] The company is accelerating development and deployment of cellulosic ethanol, which is made from non-food biomass. DDCE plans to license its technology and also will engage in limited operations of cellulosic ethanol biorefineries.[2]

The company's collaborations include work with Genera Energy and the University of Tennessee Research Foundation[3] DDCE has constructed a demonstration-scale biorefinery and research and development facility for cellulosic ethanol in Vonore, Tennessee. The plant went into operation at the end of 2009.[4][5]

DDCE was founded in 2008,[citation needed] but was eventually dissolved in 2011 [6] due to the acquisition [7]of Danisco by DuPont.
