Viability of ethanol-methanol

Reader comment on: JPC Follow-Up Conversation with Marc Goldman on Energy Security

Submitted by Ira Salomon (United States), Apr 11, 2012 15:15

Ethanol is not a viable alternative in the US. We slap a duty on Brazilian ethanol to make it uncompetitive. It may work in Brazil with their sugar based product but not in the USA.

But its BTU concentration is lower than gasoline and it has many other problems almost too numerous to enumerate.

The right solutions for transportation is Drill baby Drill. Drill off all our coasts(california, Gulf, Eastern seaboard).

The Keystone Pipeline can also increase supply.

Natural gas & NG filling stations are also cost effective.
