Industry addresses Science article

By | November 03, 2008
An October Science magazine article addressing cellulosic ethanol sustainability issues drew quick responses from concerned ethanol industry members, mainly because a New York Times news article said the Science authors "sounded a note of caution" about cellulosic ethanol production. Poet LLC stated the Times article "chose to focus on the potential environmental problems" of biofuel production, even though the Science article seemed fairly well-balanced. The Science article will be addressed in more detail in the January issue of EPM.
