Grasses Have Potential as Alternate Ethanol Crop, Illinois Study Finds.

Demand for biofuels is increasing as Americans seek to expand renewable energy sources and mitigate the effects of fluctuating energy prices. Corn ethanol is the main biofuel on the market, but demand for ethanol competes with corn’s availability as a food, and rising ethanol consumption could lead to higher food costs.

Methane is also produced from livestock… observe how it is produced.

Livestock farming is responsible for 8-10% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Methane produced by ruminants us a major contributor to the problem. Ruminant animals play a major role in human food production, converting non-human edible plant material to high-quality products such as milk and meat.The challenge for research is to find practical ways to mitigate methane production, without compromising ruminants’ role in converting on-food crops to human food.
