Ethanol Industry Eyes Plant Residue, Garbage

 “After decades of talk, the ethanol industry is building multimillion dollar refineries in several states that will use corn plant residue, wood scraps and even garbage to produce the fuel additive,” David Pitt writes for The Associated Press.

Two Iowa companies are building a corn stover plant “producing 25 million gallons of ethanol annually. Sioux Falls, SD-based ethanol-maker POET and Royal DSM, a biotechnology company based in the Netherlands, are building the $250 million plant in Emmetsburg.”

Cellulosic plants are also under construction in Kansas, Michigan and Mississippi while plants in Georgia and Nevada “will convert garbage into ethanol in commercial-size plants. One in Florida will convert yard waste and other plant material from a nearby landfill to the fuel additive.”
