I really want to put up an angry post about some people using my research to promote themselves, but I'm not going to let anger win. I'll explain later.

Just credit the folks doing the real work.

added: I did a lot of work leading up to this:

A Flagstaff couple already in the beer business is ready to brew up a different kind of fuel. Diane and David Williamson, owners of Mogollon Brewery, have formed a private company to build and operate an ethanol refinery at Camp Navajo.

The company, called Earth Friendly Fuels, would produce about 50 million gallons of ethanol per year.

The plant would produce corn-based ethanol. Then, ideally, it would transition to consuming tree scraps from a waferboard wood plant proposed in Winslow, if technology improves.

That product is called cellulosic ethanol, and it is still in the developmental stage.

The fuel refinery could consume about 200,000 tons of woody debris, or about half the output of the proposed biomass from the Winslow plant, said Pascal Berlioux, president of Arizona Forest Restoration Products, the company proposing the oriented strand board plant in Winslow.

Added: I should just calm down. The local newspaper went with the story, despite a lack of research or informed sources.

Diane Williamson declined to discuss details, saying there was no signed lease yet for the property at Camp Navajo.

The plans for the plant are a long way from fruition, which is why I haven't posted about it.
