Cellulosic ethanol from corn contributes to global warming

A new study indicates that cellulosic ethanol from corn residues is not better than gasoline. 

From the Associated Press, a study in Nature Climate change says cellulosic ethanol from corn residues produces 7% more GHG than gasoline.  Dupont has a $200 million plant coming on line that will do this.  And, of course, there is some disagreement with the study which was done under an EPA grant.

Is this another nail in the cellulosic ethanol coffin?

  1. The laws of thermodynamics are not just suggestions.

  2. I want my ethanol charcol filtered, well aged, and by the shot with a little water. NOT in my gas tank and especially not in my snowmobile or lawn mower!

  3. “And, of course, there is some disagreement with the study which was done under an EPA grant.”
    By telling the truth about ethanol, one thing is certain. They will never get another EPA grant.
