Japanese brewer gets into biofuel production

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.
