The alcohol in ethanol is produced from grain in a process that is similar — fermentation and all — to distilling alcohol for drinking. But there's a new ethanol plant in Louisiana that, when completed, should be able to make ethanol from rice hulls and bagasse, which is what's left over from harvesting sugar cane, as well as from rice straw, which is residue after rice harvesting. Disposing of rice straw costs California farmers as much as $18 million a year. Among the 30-odd ethanol plants under construction are some that could make alcohol from municipal solid waste, which is more plentiful even than rice straw.

He misses complete the fact that Minnesopta with over 300 E85 stations sells more E85 than any other State

Hopefully, the ball keeps rolling and this sort of thing gets better especially the solid municipal waste thing.

That would be huge ..and it makes so much sense especially if they can get the production costs down
