Video Transcript

There are a few differences between cellulosic biomass and corn kernels as raw materials for fuel production. The cellulosic biomass is going to cost you less, it's going to require lower inputs in the form of both energy and chemicals to produce, it is going to be more beneficial for soil fertility, and because of all of those reasons, you're going to be able to produce it in much higher volumes than you can produce corn.
