|Ontario invested more than $5 million to help Woodland and its partners build a groundbreaking demonstration plant that will efficiently produce cellulosic ethanol from renewable wastes.More... |
The key benefits associated with Woodland's Catalyzed Pressure ReductionTM ("CPRTM") technology include:
Sarnia, Ontario - Demonstration Plant
The Company has completed construction of its Sarnia, Ontario demonstration plant. The plant is in the intial stages of commissioning, with ethanol production expected in the first half of 2013.
In parallel with the demonstration plant project, the Company is advancing opportunities in North America for commerical scale plants.
- "...the bulk of new biofuel production needs to come from advanced biofuels (algae, cellulosic)."
The International Energy Association
- "The Saudi assistant petroleum minister had expressed concern that Saudis could be "greened out" of the U.S. fuel market by biofuels like ethanol."
U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, 2010.
- "...this legislation would also ensure progress made to commercialize advanced ethanol technologies utilizing new feedstocks... is accelerated."
The American Coalition for Ethanol, Growth Energy, the National Corn Growers Association, and the Renewable Fuels Association
- "...what would happen to US gasoline prices if ethanol production came to an immediate halt. Under a very wide range of parameters, the estimated gasoline price increase would be of historic proportions, ranging from 41% to 92%."

- "Another substitute for oil that holds tremendous promise is renewable biofuels...made from things like switchgrass, wood chips, and biomass."
- "I'm a big supporter of biofuels. But one of the things that's become clear is, is that we need to accelerate our basic research in ethanol and other biofuels that are made from things like woodchips..."
