Review of Corn Based Ethanol Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions

More information:

The goal of our research project on ethanol is to determine the long-term potential production scale of corn- and cellulosic-based ethanol in different geographical regions within the United States. Additionally, as the environmental impacts of large-scale ethanol production from starch and cellulosic sources vary regionally, these impacts will also be assessed and considered as one of the factors in determining the scale of ethanol production in these different geographic regions.
