Fuel Ethanol: A Technological Evolution

Senate panel to vote on MTBE bill Thursday

A key Senate panel will vote today on legislation to ban the controversial fuel additive MTBE within four years and mandate the use of ethanol and other "clean" non-petroleum fuels.

But with only five or six weeks left in this year's legislative session, it is uncertain whether the bill will have enough momentum to clear the full U.S. Senate and House of Representatives before Congress adjourns.

Oregon Cellulose-Ethanol Study

The Oregon Office of Energy has commissioned a study to evaluate the near-term potential of a cellulose-based ethanol industry in the state. This report contains an overview of available cellulose feedstocks and discusses the status of cellulose-ethanol technology. The report includes the results of an economic modeling analysis conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Oregon has an abundance cellulose feedstocks that could be used for ethanol production. The study includes a preliminary feedstock assessment with information about current market demand and uses, cost, collection potential, qualities and geographic concentrations.

A major objective of the study was to identify critical barriers and assess perceived risks to the development of commercial ethanol production in Oregon. The report addresses possible methods to overcome obstacles through the use of low-cost resources in Oregon. The report identifies market opportunities and suggests public policy initiatives.
