Cellulosic Ethanol

Posted on Jul 9, 2015 10:16:42 AM

We've covered some of the basics in the first half of our biofuels series. Now we turn to more nuanced aspects within the sector, starting with the production of cellulosic ethanol.

What is Cellulosic Ethanol?

We know from a previous blog that ethanol, is an alcohol-based biofuel used in a blended fuel form in petrol (gasoline) engines. First-generation ethanol production derives from food sources, especially corn and sugarcane, using the sugars and starches from these feedstocks.
