BP, Dupont and British Sugar have made some announcements about their partnership to produce biofuels. In one hand DuPont plans to construct a biobutanol demonstration facility with BP. In addition, DuPont, BP and British Sugar will construct a 420 million liter ethanol facility
DuPont Biofuels Vice President and General Manager John Ranieri spoke at an investors conference in New York this week and said his company's biofuel strategy is helping bring alternative and more sustainable transportation fuels to the world. The three prongs of the DuPont's research are: making more ethanol from a set amount of corn, developing technology to make cellulosic biofuels, and setting up partnership with organizations like the U.S. DOE, to bring biofuels to market.
