Occasional Paper 10: Liquid fuels from forest biomass - a commercial perspective

by John Boshier, Boshier Consulting, Dec 2012 - This paper uses U.S. cost analysis for ethanol production on a large scale which shows that ethanol can be manufactured from corn stover for NZ$900 per tonne of product. The current commodity selling price of ethanol within the US is NZ$1,134 per tonne. New Zealand’s Radiata pine forests are a similar ligno-cellulose feedstock, so export of ethanol could be viable.
