U.S. Moving Away from Corn-based Ethanol Support

7 Feb 2007 – The United States Department of Agriculture is directing more funds instead toward research and development activities  to improve conversion technologies for cellulosic ethanol.

$28 million is slated for research into higher efficiency and conversion of the cell walls of energy crops and crop residues into biofuels.  Another $10 million will support conversion of agricultural and forestry biomass into renewable fuels.  Read the USDA FY 2008 Ag Budget News Release for more info.
