New Processing Approach Accelerates Ethanol Production

Developing technologies to produce biofuels is a little like bargain hunting: the goal is to come up with a valuable product for a competitive price. To prepare these technologies for commercial use, researchers at the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) are challenged with figuring out how to generate large quantities of biofuel both efficiently and affordably.

Fortunately, GLBRC researchers at Michigan State University's Biomass Conversion Research Laboratory (BCRL) have found a way to turn corn stover, a common cellulosic feedstock, into ethanol much more quickly without sacrificing quantity or quality.
