CORRECTION (August 01, 2010)

In the article “Technology and Policy Driving Biofuels Growth” (May/June 2010), I made an error regarding B.C.’s renewable fuel targets. In fact, B.C. would need approximately 300 million litres of ethanol per year to feed its current target of 5% ethanol blended into gasoline. A Lignol biorefinery processing 1000 dry tonnes per day of feedstock will produce approximately 100 million litres of ethanol per year, so three such facilities could produce enough ethanol to meet B.C.’s target.
