Securing cost-effective biofuels from biomass feedstocks requires moving biological technology from the laboratory (a. Microbial Cultures at Oak Ridge National Laboratory) through the pilot plant (b. National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Process Development Unit) to the full industrial biorefinery [c. Industrial Biorefinery in York County, Nebraska (Abengoa Bioenergy Corporation)].
