Department of Energy, Nov. 10, 2016,
Website - Research into "biomass recalcitrance" the final barrier to converting woody biomass for direct substitution for liquid fuels such as gasoline and diesel fuels. Biomass recalcitrance is the resistance of plants to degradation or deconstruction, which blocks access to a plant’s sugars.
