According to the AAM, more ethanol content makes engines run too hot, destroys catalytic converters, and damages engine cylinders. Cellulosic ethanol plant to be constructed in China Denmark-based Novozymes, an enzyme manufacturer; COFCO, a grain, oil, and foodstuffs import and export group in China; and the Chinese oil refiner Sinopec signed a memorandum of understanding at the end of May covering the next steps toward commercialization of cellulosic biofuel in China.
