This paper discusses the different processes that can be utilized in a Maine biorefinery to produce ethanol and acetic acid as initial products, with an emphasis on the “nearneutral” process. We also analyze potential investment and production costs for a biorefinery, based upon studies that have looked specifically at this type of evolution, as well as cellulosic biorefineries that are based upon other types of processes.
