What will replace ethanol?

Corn ethanol’s got problems. Big problems, and they affect the entire world.

“In 2012, the Renewable Fuel Standard mandates the use of 12.2 billion gallons of corn ethanol—forcing as much as 40 percent of the dwindling U.S. corn crop into ethanol production. Meanwhile, the worsening drought is beginning to impact corn prices—they’ve spiked upwards of 50 percent since June. When corn prices rise, so do the prices of products that rely on corn. TheU.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) predicts increases in domestic prices of beef, dairy products and eggs ranging from 3 to 5 percent through 2013. Globally, the U.S. is the largest exporter of corn. Rising food prices will hit people in developing countries that rely on imports of our grains most severely. Higher grain prices in the U.S. are already triggering global food price spikes that parallel those seen in the 2008 global food crisis.”

Which renewable, sustainable fuel can replace ethanol? There’s only one fuel that can raise the bar on corn ethanol: higher mixed alcohol fuel. Made 24/7 from what’s in your trash, biomass, coal, methane and even power plant CO2. No crops needed.  Stronger, cleaner, more mileage, more power, less expensive to produce, and more profitable too. And completely water soluble and biodegradable, with a 138 octane rating that provides 20+ percent more mileage in gas and diesel engines. What’s not to like?
