First Commerical US Plant to Turn Wood Waste into Auto Fuel
Last week, the banned alcoholic drink Four Loko was being recycled into car fuel, and today, it’s non-food waste from crops and wood scraps. Cellulosic ethanol is by no means a new idea, but no one has been producing it in bulk amounts. However, Mascoma Corporation, a biofuels company, will break ground on the first commercial production cellulosic ethanol plant in the U.S. this year. This morning, they announced that Valero, the nation’s largest independent oil refinery, will take the entire commercial output of the plant, set to open by 2013.
