Process That Makes Ethanol with Vinegar Absorbs More Carbon Dioxide, Doesn't Use Corn, and Is $1.50 a Gallon
ZeaChem HQ (TGW) – ZeaChem technology has perfected a process that turns virtually any form of biomass into cheap ethanol.
The process would eliminated recent criticism of ethanol in that it ZeaChem’s process would not necessarily need corn, soy, or any other food to create the fuel.
The procedure also produces about 40% more ethanol and absorbs more carbon dioxide than competing processes.
The company hopes to have the fuel on the market by 2010 at about $0.80 per gallon, which translates to about $1.50 at the pump.

The company has yet to prove the technology works on a larger scale.
