Remember the feedstock can be almost any organic material and that could include sewage! A link: http://discovermagazine.com/2008/oct...g-into-ethanol

a Rangefuels link: http://www.rangefuels.com/ethanol
a Coskata link:http://www.coskata.com/Ethanol.asp


It is looking like Clewiston, Florida will be the first Commerical Coskata Plant that is to open in 2010? It will use sugar cane as a feedstock--see this link: http://biofuelsdigest.com/blog2/2008...nt-in-florida/

Then there is ethanol production from "algae". The yields are like 8x of what corn produces but...until it reaches commerical production, everything is "assumed".
