Comments due Dec. 8 on draft California energy report

Over the next 10 year, the commission said biofuels have the potential to cost-effectively displace significant quantities of petroleum fuels.

However, nearly half that potential feedstock base consists of agricultural prunings and forest management remains for which there is not yet an economic cellulosic or gasification process technology.
