Chesapeake Cellulosic Biofuels Report Released
The Report of the Chesapeake Cellulosic Biofuels Project Next-Generation Biofuels: Taking the Policy Lead for the Nation was released at the Cellulosic Biofuels Summit held on September 4, 2008 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
“This publication represents the culmination of a year-long effort on behalf of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Chesapeake Bay Commission to guide the region to a leadership role in the nation’s evolution to cellulosic biofuels. In the course of this effort, the issues of energy independence and the economy assumed new importance as gasoline and grain prices reached record highs. Against the backdrop of these unprecedented challenges, our Biofuels Advisory Panel developed a roadmap to develop the next generation of biofuels using a new set of feedstocks independent of food crops that can be grown sustainably with greater environmental benefits for our lands and waters.” READ MORE See also 2007 Report.
