Name:
Bio-ethanol
Type:
Ethanol - Product
Description:
Making ethanol from cellulose significantly expands the types and amounts of materials available for fuel production. Although there are similarities between the cellulosic and starch processes, the techno-economic challenges facing the former are large. The recalcitrance of cellulosic biomass is a major obstacle to the cost-effective production of both fuels from cellulose-rich materials.
Stage of development:
Commercialization
