Glenn: I found the following at the www.whybiotech.com website:
Higher Corn Yields are Making Ethanol More Energy Efficient
New USDA study says ethanol now yields 34 percent more energy than it takes
to produce it.
A recent U.S. Department of Agriculture study found that ethanol production
is becoming more energy-efficient all the time because corn yields are
rising, less energy is required to grow it, and ethanol conversion
technologies are becoming more efficient.
Is this consistent with the views of the oil industry? What might be the
limitations of replacing gas derived from oil with gas derived from corn?
