Ethanol: hangover cures?

Next-generation technologies for ethanol biofuels

…our recent research. Hence how could new technologies fix the economics and carbon credentials of corn-based ethanol? Our constructive outlook on ethanol + CCS is presented on pages 4-6. Ethanol

Ethanol from corn: the economics?

Ethanol from corn economics

…suggest a price of $1.6/gallon of ethanol is needed for a 10% IRR on a new greenfield plant, equivalent to $2.4/gallon gasoline. This is higher than 2020 ethanol pricing, which…

Ethanol: hangover cures?

Next-generation technologies for ethanol biofuels

Could new technologies reinvigorate corn-based ethanol? This 12-page  note assesses three options. We are constructive on combining CCS or CO2-EOR with an ethanol plant, which yields a carbon-negative fuel. But…
