Wal-Mart supports cellulosic research

Wal-Mart has made a donation to Arkansas Biosciences Institute at Arkansas State University to help fund biomass to ethanol research, according to Domestic fuel. This should help the Institute gain funding from the Department of Energy.

That’s interesting, about 10% of the US total polyethylene is moved through Wal-mart stores one way or another, I wonder if the retailer is examining ways of converting that into fuel too. Although that’s off topic. ahem.
