Categories: General Info

According to a recent story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a team of researchers has discovered new information which presents huge potential to add in the development of cellulosic ethanol. Here are some facts:

  • Madison-based Forest Products Laboratory and a team of researchers have discovered the reason that brown-rot fungi are able to break down wood so effectively.
  • The discovery could someday allow scientists to develop better techniques for breaking down biomass – such as wood chips, paper pulp, and switchgrass – and converting it into cellulosic ethanol.
