A discussion on the mature processing technology scenarios for cellulosic biomass, including stand-alone production of power, Fischer-Tropsch (FT) fuels, and hydrogen, as well as co-production scenarios involving ethanol-power, ethanol-power-FT fuels, ethanol-hydrogen, ethanol-FT fuels-natural gas, and several of these products in conjunction with feed protein, covers significant greenhouse gas reductions and petroleum displacement; the field-to-fuel supply chain; strategic selection of feedstock; and retooling of agricultural practice to accommodate efficient production of both food and fuel. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
