The article presents the study of Jim Ansley and colleagues of the Texas AgriLife Research on the importance of biomass gasification in converting millions of brushes in Texas. Researchers found that biomass gasification is effective in converting about 60 million acres of Texas brush to biofuel. Moreover, researchers also performed a study on redberry juniper and mesquite.
