ABSTRACT
The article highlights developments in the production of cellulosic ethanol for use as a biofuel in the United States. The author discusses two production facilities, including a plant operated by the KL Process Design Group (KL) near Upton, Wyoming and a facility operated by Pacific Ethanol Inc. (PE) in Boardman, Oregon. The KL facility processes a wide variety of waste wood products and converts them into ethanol. The PE facility is aiming at producing ethanol from a wide variety of biomass wastes.
