The U.S. produced 20,000 gallons of cellulosic biofuels last year and is projected to produce 250 million gallons in 2015, short of the Renewable Fuel Standard's 2012 target of 500 million gallons and one billion gallons this year. But Andy Heggenstaller, agronomy research manager for DuPont Pioneer, is optimistic that the industry will rise to the challenge. "I think what we're going to see is that DuPont and some other companies are going to make this happen in that 2015 timeframe," Heggenstaller said.
