The New North Inc., an 18-county regional economic development organization in Northeast Wisconsin, has commissioned a two-part study about the economic development opportunities associated with producing cellulosic ethanol in the region. Here are a few facts about the project:
- Phase one of the study details the availability of forest products in the region. The results have recently been released and are available for download here.
- Phase two will address topics like harvest techniques and pricing strategies.
- The study aims to attract development by showing that Northeast Wisconsin has the necessary resources for successful cellulosic ethanol production.
