Presented at the All Scientist Meeting (2012-03-15 to 2012-03-16 )

Concerns about the environmental consequences of fossil fuel use, high energy prices, and uncertain petroleum supplies have increased interest in the production of transportation biofuels. Cellulosic ethanol has the potential to partly replace currently used transportation fuels. In addition, cellulosic crop systems do not compete with food production if they are established on marginal lands currently abandoned.
