Partnership Speeds Delivery of Biofuels from Cellulosic Biomass

Wilmington, Delaware and Sioux Falls, South Dakota [] DuPont and Broin announced a partnership in the U.S. to bring cost-effective ethanol derived from corn stover to market. DuPont and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have jointly funded a four-year research program to develop technology to convert corn stover into ethanol; the Integrated Corn-Based BioRefinery (ICBR) is part of DuPont ‘s strategy to develop new innovations that convert energy crops (grasses) and agricultural byproducts (straw and corn stalks) into biofuels and other renewably sourced materials. Broin and the U.S. DOE jointly funded a five-year research initiative to develop and improve dry mill fractionation with the assistance of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and South Dakota State University.
