Mississippi Facility Uses Pine Wood Chips – No Food

Pasadena, Texas-based Kior, Inc. reports initial shipments of the world’s first cellulosic biodiesel from its first commercial-scale facility in Columbus, Miss. Kior uses pine wood chips previously that previously fed a now-shuttered Columbus paper mill. Kior’s gasoline and diesel are “the first renewable hydrocarbon fuels in the U.S. manufactured at commercial scale and derived solely from non-food feedstocks to avoid competition with human food needs,” the company says.
