Ethanol & hydrogen production

Washington Monthly has an interesting article about 1) an alternative
way to produce ethanol that results in a net gain (rather than the
current net loss) in energy and 2) a catalytic method to change
ethanol to hydrogen that requires little energy. The catch with using
hydrogen/ethanol in this way is that the fuel cell technology that's
favored right now doesn't work well. However, another (solid-state)
fuel cell technology does exist that may work with some tinkering.
