Ethanol will spike Popcorn Price!!!

Eco Friendly Daily

OON RAPIDS, Iowa – A tractor trailer rig rumbles into the Tall Corn Ethanol plant. Instead of white lightnin', the brew is converted to ethanol, a fuel that makes money for farmers and is seen as a possible solution to today's high oil and gas prices. Ethanol production in the United States is growing so quickly that, for the first time, farmers expect to sell as much corn this year to ethanol plants as they do overseas. "It's ethanol.

China to promote ethanol to minimize pollution

Eco Friendly Daily

China is considering a change in its energy policy to encourage the wider use of ethanol, a clean fuel made from agricultural products, to target the nation’s worsening air quality, a leading trader of the commodity said. Such a move would indicate crucial political support for investment in the production, import and distribution of the biofuel in China and could have an impact on world ethanol prices, which experts say will soon peak on current consumption patterns.

How to Make Ethanol

Eco Friendly Daily

Ethanol is also known as ethyl alcohol and grain alcohol. In yet another example of his forward thinking (he also pioneered soy as a sustainable fibre for clothing), Henry Ford designed the first version of his Model T Ford to run on ethanol. Though oil and gas interests defeated Ford’s proposal to make ethanol “the fuel of the future” its use has never totally disappeared in our society.

2 Sides To The Ethanol Food Crisis: What is Ethanol?

Eco Friendly Daily

There are two sides to almost every story, even when it comes to the truth about Ethanol. Is Ethanol really greener? There is very little black and white about the Ethanol debate, but there is plenty of propaganda for and against Ethanol to leave the average consumers undecided about the truth. What is Ethanol? In short, Ethanol is an alternative fuel derived from plants. Ethanol rapidly biodegrades in water and soil.

Sugarcane ethanol already meets California low carbon fuel standard, says Brazilian Sugarcane Association

Green (Living) Review

Industry comments submitted to California Air Resources Board underscore sugarcane ethanol's recognized carbon reduction levels By Michael Smith (Veshengro) Sugarcane ethanol's carbon intensity is even lower than initially calculated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), according to comments submitted today by the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA). Sugarcane ethanol has a verifiable reduction in greenhouse gases of 90% compared to gasoline.

Ethanol Fuel – The Controversy Behind It

Eco Friendly Daily

As oil reserves run out, petrol prices rise and the climate continues to change, people are increasingly looking towards ethanol fuel as a potential solution to all of these problems. Ethanol is more commonly known as the alcohol found in alcoholic drinks. The vast majority of ethanol that is used for drinking and in fuels is produced by the fermentation of sugars. In Brazil, the largest user of ethanol as a fuel, the liquid is obtained by the fermentation of sugar beat.

Bill Clinton tells Brazil “Biofuels produced at the expense of tropical forests are no victory”

Green (Living) Review

Bill Clinton said at the Ethanol Summit 2009 with reference to Brazil that being a world leader in ethanol production is no victory if it is coupled with escalating carbon emissions from deforestation President Clinton was quoted at saying: “What people are worried about Brazil is not whether you have the most efficient biofuel in the world.everybody knows that is true.

Wood Might Not Be So Green After All

Eco Friendly Daily

The idea is that wood can be used to produce ethanol, as well as providing the raw materials for carbon fibres (used for reinforcing polymers) and plastics. Cellulosic ethanol is seen as a future path for alternative fuel production, depending on biochemical methods. This ethanol plant uses acid processing and waste wood from construction. In addition, the government is promoting other ethanol sources, such as waste vegetation from agriculture.

Many gas stations in the US incorporate ethanol into their blends, all the way to fuel made from human and animal “poop” More recently, there’s been biofuel made from recycled McDonald’s fast food cooking oils which flew their UAE fleet vehicles more than 800,000 miles! Biofuel mixtures known as “flex fuel” which contain ethanol and made from grain and sugars are already being used in countries like Brazil and the US.

For one, sugarcane ethanol, produced in Brazil, stands out to both researchers as the most efficient source studied, in terms of emissions. Any biofuel that causes clearing of natural ecosystems is likely to increase global warming," Fargione says. But not all biofuels are alike. As long as there is land conversion, though, biofuels do not diminish carbon dioxide emissions.

Biofuels Leaders: Three Big Dawgs in Biofuels

Living Green & Saving Energy

Named appropriately DuPont Danisco Cellulosic Ethanol (DDCE), this company aims to be nothing less than the world’s leading provider of technology for producing fuel-grade ethanol from cellulose. DDCE plans to license its patented technology to ethanol producers for deployment in the United States and elsewhere. The BP partnership is an interesting one since butanol is an advanced biofuel with better properties as a fuel than ethanol.

Palm oil biofuels push up global food prices

Green Prophet

Scientists like Helmut were against the efficiency claims … While we love the idea of renewable energy crops for palm oil and sugarcane used in ethanol and biofuels have pushed out food producers, causing an alarming shift to rising costs for food. The rally was in part prompted by rising crude oil prices, which encouraged Brazil’s sugar mills to use more sugarcane supplies to produce ethanol, leading to reduced sugar availability in the global market.

This should result in meal being very important in the overall profitability of oilseeds, and would favour further expansion of soybean production, especially in Brazil. The market outcome will depend on the profitability of sugar versus ethanol in Brazil, the globe’s leading producer, and could remain volatile as a result of the sugar production cycle in some key Asian sugar-producing countries.

In Brazil, sugar cane is huge – boosting the country to the position of top sugar cane producer worldwide. The focus on biofuels such as ethanol has further boosted cane growing. But change is on the horizon in Brazil. With the modern western diet, sugar cane has become a central crop. Used to produce sugar and molasses, cane is also the basis for rum, cachaça , and other edibles.
