Genera Energy says Tennessee, switchgrass still on the radar for cellulosic biofuels

January 3, 2013 |

In Tennessee, the Knoxville News is reporting on a farmer who planted 90 acres of switchgrass in Loudon County for the expected market in cellulosic biofuels, but is this year feeding the crop to the cows. In commenting on p;lans by DuPont to build a cellulosic biofuels plant in the state, using feedstock aggregated by Genera Energy, Genera president and CEO Kelly Tiller told the News: “I don’t have anything that I can discuss publicly about a commercial project,” she says. “What I can say is that everything that has been said all along is really on track. … The message is exactly the same … that this is the plan and this is the sizable opportunity that is coming down the road.”
