OMAHA (DTN) -- A major cellulosic ethanol development company said it is asking its farmers to remove far less biomass than outlined in a recent University of Nebraska-Lincoln study.

The university study released last week concluded that removing corn stover for cellulosic ethanol production could result in higher greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline. The biofuels industry has since attacked the study from several angles.

In short, the UNL study assumes that an average of 75% of corn stover would be removed across the Corn Belt, or nearly 2.7 tons per acre.
