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.
