I agree, the sad part is cellulosic has really been ready for a while but the WILL to do so was never there; neither in the government or private.

Took a Danish king to get it financed.

Perhaps other countries are more progressive?

Ah well, I am waiting for news as they start slowly ramping, the plant was built at the end of the season so I am not sure if they have a full feedstock stream yet. (good season to get the stuff though)

Big difference between planning and actually up and running in a physical sense.

I think a real milestone was achieved as soon as boots were to the ground.

A dollar ethanol or e85 is too good to be true. I find it trails gasoline by 25-50 cents when the price of gas climbs. When the price of gas falls, it lags by 25-50 cents too.
