BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota delegation is making a trip to Denmark next month to learn more about that country's efforts to develop a cellulosic ethanol industry.

Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says state government officials will be joined on the trip by representatives of the energy industry and farm groups.

Great River Energy and the Inbicon subsidiary of a Danish utility company are developing a cellulosic biomass refinery east of Jamestown. Inbicon operates a demonstration facility in Denmark that the North Dakota delegation will tour.

The 22-member group is to leave March 9 and return four days later.
