Advanced biofuel companies have partnered with other parties to develop a two-step process to produce new types of advanced cellulosic biofuels. To support production of these new biofuels, processing facilities built next to landfills or trash sites breakdown specific types of garbage, paper, cardboard and other municipal solid waste to produce a liquid biofuel feedstock. This bio-intermediate, can then be sent to another facility for co-processing into renewable transportation fuels alongside petroleum to create a blended, advanced and renewable fuel.
