iBioSeminar: Technical Issues Associated with Future Large-Scale Cellulosic Biofuels Production

This presentation describes the rationale for using plant biomass as a source of fuels and presents information about how much energy could be obtained in this way. Examples of the kinds of plants that are likely to be used are presented along with comments on some of the issues, such as losses to disease and effects of various cropping systems on soil quality, that need additional research. The potential for various types of biofuels are compared and some of the technical challenges in production of cellulosic fuels are outlined.
