Louisana signs advanced biofuels law into being

Lousiana has signed the HB1270 Advanced Biofuel Industry Development Initiative into law. It features the use of  hydrous and anhydrous ethanol as a fuel blend stock that will be derived from plants grown in Lousiana (but not corn) and capable of producing 600gal/acre, with only one-third nitrogen input of con and half the water of corn. It will be available in blends from 10, to 85% by volume of the gasoline it is blended with.  In addition to 10% income tax reductions there will be a grant to trial the process.

Looks to me like they’re pushing sorghum as a biofuel crop that could help to regenerate a state which is still suffering from the effect of Hurricane Katrina .
