ABSTRACT
The article presents the Fulcrum Sierra BioFuels project that will help reduce U.S.'s dependence on foreign oil and advance efforts to develop a cleaner and more sustainable alternative energy source. The biofuel facility will convert 147,000 tons of municipal solid waste into 10 million gallons of ethanol annually and will serve as flagship for other plants in the U.S. The facility is backed by a 105 million U.S. dollars federal loan guarantee by U.S. President Barack Obama's administration.
