Ethanol without the microbes

Interesting comment from David Benson, a bit off topic,  but bang on the money about alternative technologies. This has a lot of things I like, especially the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis plant which uses hydrogen from electrolysed water, (electricity generated by wind) and smokestack carbon dioxide to make ethanol. It would be interesting to see how Doty Energy’s economics of production stack up and also if the ethanol/acre claim is based on the factory’s footprint or that of the turbines.
