U.S. needs 1,000 cellulosic biorefineries

The U.S. needs 1,000 cellulosic ethanol plants by 2040 to snap the stranglehold of fossil fuels on the market, said Michael Knotek, a deputy undersecretary at the Department of Energy, at the official opening of the POET-DSM cellulosic ethanol plant in Emmetsburg, Iowa. The U.S. needs 60 billion to 100 billion gallons of cellulosic fuel to break the oil industry's dominance, Knotek said. To achieve that, the federal government is committing $235 million next year to promote cellulosic biofuels, he stated.
