Sounds a little like, "Back to the drawing board."

There is some critical scale for pilot-development that helps to reduce the
risk of up-scaling. Duh! If RF had dropped $10MM, people would be startled.
But $300MM? It's literally unbelievable.

There must have been a bunch of golf weekends at St. Andrews included on the
tab. Wow! A (RAT)HOLE-in-one.

Magic happens; now watch us make nearly 1/3 Billion U$D disappear.

Does it mean that Range Fuels have still unsolved problems in their
Cellulosic Ethanol process?

"Cellulosic ethanol company Range Fuels is closing its Soperton, Georgia
facility after completing it first batch of ethanol, according to story
posted by Georgia Public Broadcasting. 

The firm, which has received more than $300 million dollars in state,
federal and private funding, will lay off the majority of its workers and
shutter operations, while it attempts to raise more money and address
technical issues."
