Chew on this: Ethanol
January 15, 2008
Between 2001 and 2007, U.S. fuel ethanol production capacity grew 220% from 1.9 billion to 6.1 billion gallons. Much of this growth was made possible by government regulation and legislation that actively supports the ethanol industry by creating mandatory ethanol demand and financially attractive investment opportunities in ethanol production capacity.
“Ethanol is a clean-burning, high-octane motor fuel that is produced from renewable sources. At its most basic, ethanol is grain alcohol, produced from crops such as corn.”
