The economic competitiveness of cellulosic biofuels production is highly dependent on feedstock cost, which constitutes 35-50% of the total production cost, depending on various geographical factors and the types of systems used for harvesting, collecting, preprocessing A preliminary processing of data in order to prepare it for the primary processing or for further analysis. The term can be applied to any first or preparatory processing stage when there are several steps required to prepare data for the user. , transporting, and handling the material. Initial studies show that AETE's biomass preprocessing technology increases production by 10% while reducing process time by about 12%.

"By reducing size, we increase surface area and density, which allows cellulose to more efficiently be digested into its end products. We believe that a 10% increase in efficiency will translate into a similar reduction in the cost per gallon of biofuels we produce," he concluded.
Cellulose forms the largest store of biomass energy on the planet. Composed of linked polysaccharide polysaccharide: see carbohydrate.
Any of a large class of long-chain sugars composed of monosaccharides. Because the chains may be unbranched or branched and the monosaccharides may be of one, two, or occasionally more kinds, chains and lignins, it forms the bulk structural material for trees, woody plants and shrubs. Feedstock preprocessing requirements, and the concentration of starches, will impact energy balance and production cost. As the deployment of cellulosic biorefineries approaches, feedstock cost versus output are the driving factors that influence biorefinery locations and will largely control the rate at which this industry grows.
The Company: The Alternative Energy Technology Center, Inc. [OTC:AETE], based in The Woodlands, TX, is a technology company focused on biofuels and alternative energy technologies. It is developing the first true biorefinery in the U.S. It will focus on technologies using renewable energy Renewable energy utilizes natural resources such as sunlight, wind, tides and geothermal heat, which are naturally replenished. Renewable energy technologies range from solar power, wind power, and hydroelectricity to biomass and biofuels for transportation. inputs from non-food energy sources and on technologies that can be scaled up to efficiently addresses the post-petroleum energy needs of the United States United States, officially United States of America, republic (2005 est. pop. 295,734,000), 3,539,227 sq mi (9,166,598 sq km), North America.
