Honda To Research Cellulosic Ethanol

Honda will build a new R&D facility in Japan that will focus on producing biofuels from non-food feedstocks by November 2009. Honda has been working with the Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth since 2006 and began operating an experimental production facility in 2007.

At this time, Nissan and Toyota are the only foreign automobile manufacturers that offer flexible fuel vehicles (FFV). There are over seven million FFVs currently on American roads.
