Ethanol Across America has released a white paper detailing ethanol as a molecule and the benefits and future of cellulosic ethanol. The paper, “Creating a Path for Cellulose” is written by Wes Bolsen, chief marketing officer and vice president of government affairs for Coskata Inc., a leading producer of cellulosic ethanol.

The paper is intended to educate the public on second-generation ethanol and to correct misconceptions about the fuel.

“Often times what is missing from the conversation about ethanol, particularly non-grain based cellulosic ethanol, are the facts; our white paper sets the record straight,” said Doug Durante, executive director of the Clean Fuels Foundation and director of the Ethanol Across America Campaign. “This paper in particular lays out the reasons why the U.S. must stay the course and reap the benefits of producing homegrown biofuels.”

“Creating a Path for Cellulose” makes the case for realizing the benefits of cellulosic ethanol and the importance of the fuel, particularly when considering the requirements of the Renewable Fuel Standard.

“Cellulosic ethanol technology is ready today and is being deployed at commercial scale,” said Wes Bolsen, chief marketing officer and vice president of government affairs for Coskata Inc. and author of the white paper. “Throughout the paper, we detail why ethanol is scientifically the best fuel coming from biomass and the predictable and enduring government support needed to commercialize.”

Produced by the Clean Fuels Foundation and distributed through the Ethanol Across America education campaign, Bolsen’s paper is part of an ongoing series that has included experts from automotive, food, environmental, and legal fields covering a range of issues affecting biofuels.
