Ethanol Potential in Georgia

SE Bioenergy Conference ChamblissSenator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia is proud that his home state is playing a role in the production of alternative, domestic fuels.

“We’re not only producing ethanol from corn with a couple of facilities in south Georgia, but because of our soils and long growing season, we’re going to be a major participant in cellulosic based ethanol production as well,” Chambliss said at last week’s Southeast Bioenergy Conference.

Chambliss is also very proud that his alma mater, the University of Georgia, was recently awarded a nearly $2.5 million in grants from the Department of Energy for cellulosic biofuels development.
