■ Abstract Ethanol made from lignocellulosic biomass sources, such as agricultural and forestry residues and herbaceous and woody crops, provides unique environmental, economic, and strategic benefits. Through sustained research funding, primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy, the estimated cost of biomass ethanol production has dropped from∼$4.63/gallon in 1980 to∼$1.22/gallon today, and it is now potentially competitive for blending with gasoline. Advances in pretreatment by acid… CONTINUE READING
