KiOR Starts Up Cellulosic Oil Unit
Renewable fuels firm KiOR has begun making oil from southern yellow pine at a new facility in Columbus, Miss. The company says the oil meets its specifications for upgrading into gasoline and diesel at the facility.

KiOR’s technology is adapted from fluid catalytic cracking used in petroleum refining. . . .
