First Cellulosic Ethanol Plant is Open
It has been open nearly 2 months, but I just figured out that the first commercial cellulosic ethanol plant is open in Emettsburg Iowa. This seemed like a good idea when we had $8 corn. With cash prices around $3 I don't know. It is a technology that needs to be developed for our future, but it would see we have enough corn at least this year to take care of energy needs, food needs, and feed needs, as well as export. In any case it will be interesting to see how this works out.
