Sierra Club files suit against Mascoma project

| December 27, 2011

In Michigan, the Sierra Club has filed a lawsuit in federal court against Frontier Renewable Resources’ plans to build a wood-to-ethanol project in the Upper Peninsula. The suit, the second against the project, claims that the DOE did not examine all the potential environmental impacts. Frontier Renewable Resources is utilizing Mascoma’s technology.

Construction on the project is meant to begin this spring with ethanol production starting in 2013 with 560,000 tons of pulpwood annually from public and private lands within a 150-mile radius of Kinross used as feedstock.
