Funding for Cellulosic Ethanol

Partnerships are leading the way for U.S. ethanol industry.

The U.S. Department of Energy is providing more than $84 million to three small-scale cellulosic ethanol plants.

"This kind of partnership between the government and private industry is critical to accelerating the commercialization of cellulosic ethanol technology and ensuring the promise of the recently passed energy bill is realized," says Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen.  "The work that will be done at these facilities will yield commercially-produced ethanol from cellulosic material much sooner than naysayers and conventional wisdom suggest."

Receiving the funding from DOE are ICM, Inc. of Colwich, Kan., Lignol Inovations, Inc. of Berwyn, Penn., and Pacific Ethanol, Inc., of Sacramento, Calif.
