The Energy Information Administration wants several companies combined to produce about 20,000 gallons of fuels using cellulosic biomass (e.g., wood waste, sugarcane bagasse) from commercial-scale facilities in late 2012. EIA estimates this output could grow to more than 5 million gallons in 2013, as operations ramp up at several plants.

Note: Initial commercial scale facilities are expected to produce between 10 and 30 million gallons of biofuels. As yields improve and producers take advantage of economies of scale, this could grow to 50 or 100 million gallons.
