Ethanol & Bio Fuels in Trouble

Posted on February 17, 2009
TURNING GREEN: It's not a big shock, but corn-based ethanol is drying up out there. Corn ethanol plants are constantly closing, and many hurdles are in place blocking other biofuels made from cellulosic materials like wood and sugar wastes. Biodiesel isn't a clear green solution for bus operators, either. Flex fuel and biofuel vehicles aren't going away right now, but it's not easy to find enough fuel stations, and whether the emission reductions, mileage, and cost per mile is worth the investment remains to be seen. -- J.L.
