Cellulosic Fuels

What is Cellulosic fuel?

Cellulosic fuel is a biofuel produced from wood, grasses, or the

non-edible parts of plants.

According to U.S. Department of Energy studies conducted by Argonne

National Laboratory of the University of Chicago, one of the benefits of

cellulosic fuel is that it reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 85% over

reformulated gasoline. By contrast, starch ethanol (e.g., from corn), which

most frequently uses natural gas to provide energy for the process, may not

reduce GHG emissions at all depending on how the starch-based feedstock

is produced. A study by Nobel Prize winner Paul Crutzen found ethanol

produced from corn, and sugarcane had a "net climate warming" effect when

compared to oil.
