Ethanol Myths, Busted

June 24, 2011 |

In Illinois, Forrest Jehlik of Argonne National Laboratory published “Five Ethanol Myths, Busted” at Wired: Autopia.

In an entertaining read, Jehlik busted Myth No. 1: Ethanol requires more energy to make than it yields; Myth No. 2: Ethanol production reduces our food supply; Myth No. 3: Ethanol crops and production emit more greenhouse gases than gasoline; Myth No. 4: Ethanol requires too much water to produce; and addressed Myth No. 5: Cars get lower gas mileage with ethanol.
