  4. Using cellulosic biomass feedstocks can not only alleviate the potential concern of diverting food crops to produce fuel, but also has a variety of environmental benefits. Shown here is a pilot cellulosic biomass biorefinery in Nebraska.

  5. Cellulosic biomass—like trees and grasses—is not generally used as a food source and can be used as feedstock for ethanol production. Here, a pilot cellulosic biomass biorefinery in South Dakota uses biochemical conversion technology to produce fuel-grade ethanol from cellulosic feedstocks.
