    Cellulosic Ethanol Experiments and Studies


      Cellulosic ethanol is a renewable transportation biofuel produced from wood, grasses, or agricultural wastes. Unlike corn ethanol, cellulosic biofuel plants are environmentally friendly because they do not need fertilizers, pesticides, and domestic water to grow.
