SWEET!

http://domesticfuel.com/2008/01/29/first-american-cellulosic-plant-in-production/

Cellulosic ethanol is now in production at the first small scale waste wood commercial facility operating in the U.S.

Located just 1 mile South of Upton, Wyoming, the plant was engineered, constructed and is operated by KL Process Design Group. This is the result of six years of development efforts between KL and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

“It is now possible to economically convert discarded wood into a clean burning, sustainable alternate motor fuel” said Randy Kramer, president of KL Process Design Group, a design firm that has been working in corn ethanol. “We’re proud of what this small company has accomplished, and believe that our design will be a cornerstone from which we can build our country’s renewable fuel infrastructure providing a better source of motor fuel, starting today.”

KL’s cellulosic ethanol plant is converting waste wood into a renewable fuel. The current production facility is utilizing soft woods, but successful test runs have occurred making use of waste materials such as cardboard and paper.

KL also announced today that the cellulosic ethanol it will be producing at the Wyoming plant will be used to fuel the American Le Mans Series Corvette Racing team running on E85.

I thought that part was pretty cool.

I hope this spreads fast. E85 is all I would use if I could. I would convert my car if its not FFV at that time.

We just got a new station that is on my way to the race track. I can't wait to get my Camaro converted. That just makes it even better.

That's great that they can get ethanol out of wood and wood products.

We have one E-85 station in town. They charge too much to make it worth while to purchase it.
