The engine for cellulosic ethanol and green chemicals.
To inaugurate cellulosic ethanol production in the US and around the world using the world’s largest untapped renewable resource.
To enable ethanol producers to produce cellulosic ethanol using locally available sources of otherwise unusable cellulosic biomass.
To further develop new yeast-based processes for the cost-effective production of cellulosic ethanol and green chemicals from cellulosic biomass.
To help expand the US farmer-owned corn ethanol plants to co-produce cellulosic ethanol with corn ethanol. Each corn ethanol plant can produce an additional 20-30% ethanol using cellulosic resources without requiring new facilities. This also enables corn ethanol plants to hedge against drought and fluctuating corn prices.
To diminish the US
dependency upon foreign oil, and to help keep the world's environment
healthy for future generations.
