>Seems to be like a very bad idea to go to another carbon-based fuel.
>It diverts the carbon from the land, does not sequester carbon, but
>puts it back into the atmosphere., and mines the soil of micronutrients.

>>Cellulosic Ethanol Technology Forum and Roundtable Discussion
>>February 15 (Thursday), 2007
>>9 am to 4 pm
>>South Coast AQMD Headquarters Auditorium
>>21865 Copley Drive
>>Diamond Bar, CA 91765
>>Transportation sources in the South Coast Air Basin are
>>substantial contributors of air pollution and toxic risk
>>affecting the residents of the South Coast Air Basin, primarily
>>because the fuel used in transportation sources is based on
>>petroleum, such as gasoline and diesel. Such overwhelming
>>dependency on a single fuel makes California and this Basin
>>vulnerable to supply shortages and consequent severe price
>>hikes, that in turn could seriously affect California's ability
>>to move goods and people. Alternative fuels, such as ethanol,
>>can reduce this dependency on petroleum and also enable this
>>agency to meet its targeted air quality goals. Twenty percent
>>of the ethanol currently produced in the country is consumed in
>>California. However, production of this corn-based ethanol is
>>ultimately limited by a number of factors. To be sustainable in
>>the long-term and on a large scale, it is imperative that ethanol
>>be produced from forest and agricultural residues such as corn
>>stalks and rice stalks, and other plant materials including
>>grasses and wood grown for this purpose.
>>The South Coast AQMD is pleased to host this one-day technology
>>forum and roundtable discussion of the current and upcoming
>>technologies which could increase production of ethanol from
>>biomass sources of waste cellulose. The morning will consist of
>>formal presentations by a panel of national technical experts on
>>the production of cellulosic ethanol. In the afternoon, there
>>will be a roundtable discussion among the panelists to
>>facilitate a candid exchange of views and suggestions. This
>>roundtable will be moderated by Dr. Charles Wyman, Ford Motor
>>Company Professor, University of California, Riverside. Members
>>of the public will also be able to ask questions of the
>>Technology Forum/Roundtable participants.
>>The South Coast AQMD encourages anyone interested in this topic
>>to attend this forum free of charge. This forum will also be
>>webcast live, and copies of the webcast and of all the
>>presentations will be posted on the AQMD's Technology
>>Forum/Roundtable web page at:
