Description: With greatly increased gasoline and diesel prices in the United States, worldwide crude oil prices at record levels, dependence on imports from insecure sources, and environmental concern over accumulation of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels, residents and legislators recognize the increasing need for alternative supplies of transportation fuels. Production of ethanol from wood is not yet economically viable, but new legislation supports research to solve problems and provides subsidies that can make manufacturing profitable.
