Mascoma drops Minnesota project to focus on Michigan, Alberta commercial-scale cellulosic biofuels

February 20, 2012 |

In Minnesota, Mascoma Corporation revealed that a cellulosic ethanol project planned for Little Falls, which the company inherited when it acquired SunOpta’s cellulosic ethanol division, has been abandoned. The company said that the venture was abandoned late last year and that Mascoma will instead forces on commercial projects in Kinross, Michigan and Drayton Valley, Alberta.

The $123 million Little Falls project was the recipient of $1.01 million in grants from Minnesota’s Next Generation Energy Board and the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute, which offset project feasibility study costs and are not recoverable by the state.
