Does ethanol have shortcomings? Absolutely not. There
have been reports that ethanol production could be
depleting food supplies with corn being noted most
often. As the demand for corn has increased, so too
has its crop production, and supply and demand will
soon level out.
But better still, the production of ethanol from non-food
biomass waste solves several dilemmas with one simple
Summit Natural Energy produces ethanol from food processing and
agricultural waste. By-product that's distilled to produce clean power
ethanol otherwise disposed of in landfills.
Ethanol is a clean burning, high octane fuel easily added to gasoline.
This addition accomplishes many objectives:
Reduces dependence on fossil fuel
Oxygenates gasoline for cleaner burning
Reduces oil demand from refineries and foreign import
Creates domestic jobs
Produces its own by-product utilized as livestock feed
Non-toxic and environmentally friendly
Utilizes resources that otherwise may have gone to waste
