What is cellulosic ethanol?



  1. 0 Votes

    Cellulosic ethanol is a bio-fuel. Cellulose is what makes up the cell walls of green plants. The proposed advantage of this bio-fuel over those made from corn or other edible crops is that cellulose is inedible. This means that the waste from edible crops (like corn stalks) can be used instead of the edible crops themselves. However, new studies show that it might be better all-around to simply harvest certain types of grasses for cellulosic ethanol and leave the waste from edible crops to replenish its own soil.
