Hoover, Ala., announced the delivery of its first batch of biofuel made from Hoover’s very own wood waste (trees, limbs & branches).
The fuel will be used in General Motors Flex-Fuel vehicles.
GM continues to aggressively encourage next-generation ethanol from all sources, including cellulosic materials like the wood waste being used by Hoover.
Cellulosic ethanol, which comes from sources such as grass and wood, has far fewer collateral effects on our environment and economy compared with corn-based ethanol.
If more automakers begin to look for cellulosic ethanol solutions, and more cellulosic producers come online, the U.S. will go a long way toward solving its dependency on foreign oil.
