Land usage attributed to corn ethanol production in the united states: Sensitivity to technological advances in corn grain yield, ethanol conversion, and co-product utilization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

As alternatives to petroleum-based energy sources are sought in the US, great attention has been given to renewable fuel sources from agriculturally produced biofeedstocks, for example, miscanthus, switchgrass, sugar cane, rapidly growing tree species, and corn. Renewable fuel sources not only reduce US dependence on foreign sources for energy, but support environmental stewardship through reduction of greenhouse gas production and promote rural development.
