--When Henry Ford told a New York Times reporter that ethyl alcohol was "the fuel of the future" in 1925, he was expressing an opinion that was widely shared in the automotive industry. "The fuel of the future is going to come from fruit like that sumach out by the road, or from apples, weeds, sawdust -- almost anything," he said. "There is fuel in every bit of vegetable matter that can be fermented. There's enough alcohol in one year's yield of an acre of potatoes to drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the fields for a hundred years."

Ethanol as fuel

Quote:Because ethanol fuels are made from renewable home-grown resources such as corn, they have proven beneficial to both the economy as well as the environment. From each bushel of corn, 2.7 gallons of ethanol can be derived, along with two other co-products: distillers' dried grains (a protein feed supplement for cattle), and carbon dioxide, which has a range of industrial as well as commercial uses. U.S. production of ethanol has surpassed the billion gallon mark and currently produces 2.2 billion gallons.
