Wyoming, US, company to make ethanol from pine waste instead of food crops...

A Wyoming,US,company called K L Process Design Group has reportedly branched out from making corn ethanol and has built a small factory to make the fuel from pine waste instead.

This is actually great news , because there have been many reports of companies making ethanol from food crops in the Amazon in South America and in other parts of the globe.

My country, New Zealand, has also investigated and experimented with the manufacture of ethanol from pine waste as well. Sadly a change in government from the left of centre Labour -led Government to a rightwing National Government may see this emerging industry given less importance or decline.

However, the Wyoming decision is a great decision and influence on others.
