  • Ethanol production could jeopardize soil productivity

    There is growing interest in using crop residues as the feedstock of choice for the production of cellulosic-based ethanol because of the more favorable energy output relative to grain-based ethanol. This would also help provide a solution to the debate of food versus fuel, because less of the grain would be diverted to ethanol production, leaving more available for food and feed consumption. ...

  • Fueling ethanol production while protecting water quality

    Grain-based ethanol production has increased dramatically in recent years as the cost and instability of oil has increased. New US government policies require major increases in ethanol production. While future plans call for a viable cellulosic ethanol industry, expanded grain ethanol production will lead to further growth of corn acres in the near term, with unintended negative water quality ...

  • U.S. Water Under Pressure as Ethanol Production Soars

    WASHINGTON, DC, October 10, 2007 (ENS) - If U.S. ethanol production continues to rise, the effect on water quality could be considerable and water supply problems could develop, says a new report today from the National Academy of Sciences' National Research Council. Increased pressure on local aquifers used to grow and refine ...

  • Project LIBERTY Biorefinery Starts Cellulosic Ethanol Production

    Project LIBERTY, the nation’s first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plant to use corn waste as a feedstock, announced the start of production today (Sep 3, 2014). Once operating at full, commercial-scale, the biorefinery in Emmetsburg, Iowa will produce 25 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol per year - enough to avoid approximately 210,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually. Developed ...

  • Ethanol’s Not So Great

    September 20, 2007. Bio-fuels and oil sands are doing big business in North America—they’re seen as a way to escape a dependent relationship with foreign imports of oil. But these industries demand more water than we have to spare.  Ethanol, a growing industry in areas like the U.S. Midwest, uses massive amounts of water in the fermentation and cooling stages of production. According to the ...
