Why push ethanol technology now?
Significant strides have been made in ethanol research and development.
First-generation ethanol from grain-based sources has experienced huge leaps in biotechnology.
More importantly, second-generation sustainable biomass-to-biofuel processing is starting today as well. GM and Coskata of Warrenville, Illinois, are working together to bring to market ethanol produced from biomass and municipal waste as soon as late 2010.
Imagine a day when your lawn clippings and old tires will be processed into ethanol. Not only will landfill practices be redefined, many different carbon products will be able to be reused to help offset growing energy demand.
