A host of new sustainable technologies are emerging to convert America’s waste products, agricultural residue, grasses, algae and others into bio-based products. Cellulosic ethanol is one of the most promising biomass products in this category. Sustainable innovation companies such as DuPont and Procter & Gamble (P&G) are introducing new technologies that promote efficiencies, open new markets for biomass, and generate employment in green sectors.
