Re: Paper from Corn Stover

The story on Heartland Fibers is that it exists in name but is not active due to financial (and possibly legal) difficulties. The technology, however, appears to be even more promising than implied in the article to which you referred (SERBEP, FEB 1998). I have spoken with one individual who had a considerable role in evaluating this as a way to use corn stover for paper pulp production in a sustainable way, and he is optimistic that it can be and should be done. He knew of no other company carrying out this work. For more information, email him (identified for now as "MCS") at chem43@yahoo.com    Sandy Rock, PNW PPRC, Seattle, WA
