SENT TUESDAY: ETHANOL FROM EUCALYPTUS (postponed from last week) — UF/IFAS researchers working to produce ethanol from plants are taking a hard look at eucalyptus as a possible feedstock. They switched focus from sugarcane to eucalyptus, a fast-growing hardwood, because it’s easier to store and transport and more tolerant of cold weather.
