Another brewery wants to get involved in biofuel production, this time in Japan. The second largest brewer in the land of the rising sun, Kirin will build a small scale experimental ethanol plant this fall. The plant will use the residual barley malt from brewing as a feedstock and should start production by the end of 2007. The plant, to be located on Hokkaido, will initially have a capacity of about 4,000 gallons a year.
