“…this is not a battle over ethanol, much less a battle over biofuels. For most, it is a proxy battle over corn.”

 

“One thing all groups are agreed about – advanced biofuels offer options for farmers, for the environment, for meat producers, for consumers.”

 

Also: biobutanol, sugarbeet feedstock, and “diverting” biomass to producing electric power instead of liquid fuels could kill off the nascent advanced biofuels industry.
