Biofuel Markets Hinge on Biomass Progress – Report

“Without a significant innovation in cellulosic ethanol, the biofuels market is likely to falter, or at least lack the pace necessary to satisfy a significant percentage of demand…”, according to the report by BioWorld Today, which bills itself as the daily biotechnology newspaper.
“Corn cannot conceivably handle the displacement of gasoline in the US anymore than crop-based ethanol can keep pace with global gasoline consumption without running out of steam,” the report added.
