Several companies once exclusively billed as cellulosic ethanol producers have widened their focus to include the production of higher-value biobased chemicals and drop-in substitutes. One example is Broomfield, Colo.-based Range Fuels Inc., which recently produced its first batch of cellulosic methanol at its Soperton, Ga., facility. In Wisconsin, Flambeau River Biofuels shelved its cellulosic ethanol project long ago, and is now focused on the gasification of woody biomass to produce renewable diesel and paraffin wax. In addition, BlueFire Ethanol Fuels Inc. recently changed its name to BlueFire Renewables Inc. to better illustrate its ability to produce other advanced fuels. While BlueFire's first two facilities will initially produce cellulosic ethanol, the company plans to eventually produce other products.
