Even as the tide turns against corn ethanol, GM and ten U.S. state governments announced a new partnership last week to get more E85 to more flexfuel vehicles. The states involved here are: Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Each state will "work with GM to advance location selection, development and usage of their state's E-85 (85 percent ethanol, 15 percent gasoline) infrastructure."

The National Governors Association is teaming up with General Motors to promote the expansion of E85 distribution around the country. While no one seriously expects the corn-based ethanol that we have today to be anything more than a very small piece of the fuel puzzle, GM is firmly committed to next-generation biofuels. Since the start of this year, GM has made equity investments in two different companies (Coskata and Maskoma) developing processes to produce low-cost cellulosic ethanol.
