Butanol: Are You Still Out There?
In 2004, Environmental Energy, Inc announced that they had developed a manufacturing process that could yield 2.5 gallons of butanol per bushel of corn, and could even create butanol out of switch grass and yard waste. The last information the company gives is that it's still raising money to step their production into high gear. Perhaps Bush's new call to invest in alternative energy will give butanol a chance.
