    I bet farmers are happy.

    E85 isn't worth a damn though, in my opinion.

    Not to mention, that when you produce one gallon of ethanol, you create three gallons of waste water.


    The treehuggers are going to go bezerk with all that water being wasted.

    Just one small point here....... after the "mash" is cooked to get the alcohol out of it, it actually makes a better stock feed than raw corn.

    The stillage is sent through a centrifuge that separates the coarse grain from the solubles. The solubles are then concentrated to about 30% solids by evaporation, resulting in Condensed Distillers Solubles (CDS) or "syrup." The coarse grain and the syrup are then dried together to produce dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS), a high quality, nutritious livestock feed. The CO2 released during fermentation is captured and sold for use in carbonating soft drinks and beverages and the manufacture of dry ice.

    Which is still no reason to subsidize Ethanol and make my corn tortillas scarce and cost more.

    Guess we start growing sugarcane if we're going to go ethanol.
