Refineries will be able to meet a government mandate to produce 36 billion gal/year of biofuels providing they make technological advances, according to a new study. Some 21 billion gal of that production is achievable using non-food cellulosic material, but only if technology improves yields of ethanol/dry ton of biomass, the study says. The remaining 15 billion gal, a cap under the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) mandate on the amount of biofuel that can be obtained from corn, is also achievable, says the study by Sandia National Laboratories...
