Novel Way to Make Ethanol Without Corn or Other Plants

ncem imageStanford University scientists, with help from Jim Ciston at Berkeley Lab’s National Center for Electron Microscopy, have found a new, highly efficient way to produce liquid ethanol from carbon monoxide gas. This promising discovery could provide an eco-friendly alternative to conventional ethanol production from corn and other crops, say the scientists. Their results are published in the April 9 advanced online edition of the journal Nature. Go here to read a Stanford University news release on the research.
