Dear Paul Fischbeck,

The studies that I have seen suggest newspaper can be converted to ethanol fuel.

The studies aren t exclusively on newspaper though. Some of the studies are:

 Mixed waste paper to ethanol fuel: A technology, market, and economic assessment for Washington, by Washington State Energy Office, 1/91. Available from NTIS: Document #: DE 92011828/WEP
 Feasibility study of burning wast paper in coal-fire boilers on Air Force installations by Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. 9/93. NTIS: A270 772/7/WEP.
 Mixed Waste Paper as a fuel in Waste Age, 10/91, byu James Kersletter and John K. Lyons.
 Results of emissions and ash testing in full-scale co-combustion tests of binder-enhanced dRDF Pellets and High-Sulfur Coal by Oscar Ohlsson, Argonne National Lab, et.al, U of North Texas, May 14, 1990. Available from US DOE Argonne National Lab, 9700 S. Cass Ave, Argonne, IL 60439
Other studies emanate from Canada and Finland. See especially anything by Jaako Poyrey (a Finnish Consulting and Manufacturing firm).
