Celunol settles in Cambridge 

Celunol has made Cambridge, Massachusetts its permanent home. Cellulosic ethanol is widely regarded as one of the nation’s most promising energy options. Derived from abundant feedstocks and agricultural wastes, it was highlighted in the President’s State of the Union address, in which he called for a 20% reduction in gasoline consumption by 2017.

Celunol recently began operations at its first-in-the-nation, pilot-scale cellulosic ethanol facility in Jennings, Louisiana. The company has also started pre-construction activities on a 1.4 million gallon demonstration-scale cellulosic ethanol facility at the same location, with an official groundbreaking slated for mid-February.

The company has also licensed its technology to Marubeni Corp., a Japanese conglomerate, which has recently completed a demonstration-scale cellulosic ethanol facility in Osaka, Japan that employs wood waste as a feedstock.
