Green diesel: New process makes liquid transportation fuel from plants
...the energy required to make ethanol is consumed in fermenting
and distilling corn. As a result, ethanol production creates 1.1 units of energy for every unit of energy consumed. In the UW-Madison process, the desired alkanes spontaneously separate from water. No additional heating or distillation is required. T...
