Forests killed by pine beetle being turned into biofuel

Cobalt Technologies has developed a way to turn lodgepole pines killed by the pine beetle into biobutanol.

“If we use only half of the 2.3 million acres currently affected in Colorado alone, we could produce over two billion gallons of biobutanol — enough to blend into all the gasoline used in Colorado for six years,” says their CEO.
