Fuel in the Pines, Georgia’s Bright Future in Bioenergy

Bioenergy experts are predicting that Georgia will play a leading role in the research and production of biofuels in the 21st century. And, Ross Harding, Managing Partner and founder of Energy Launch Partners LLC, predicts Georgia will be able to produce 20 percent of its fuel needs – about 1.6 billion gallons of ethanol a year – from forest resources.

The following is an excerpt from the Georgia Trend full article:

Georgia has mass quantities of biomass.  The 24 million acres of commercial forest (second only to Oregon) are just the beginning. There is copious farmland to grow crops for fuel or food or both; tons of wood debris, paper pulp, grass; about a billion pounds of chicken fat and grease from the poultry processing industry (a key biodiesel feedstock), and at least one power plant producing electricity from chicken litter.
