Ethanol From Citrus Peels

Green Car Congress has an interesting article on creating Ethanol From Citrus Peels.

There are lots of stories in the news these days about different approaches for ethanol production. I found this one particularly interesting in that it not only has the promise to produce 80 millions gallons of ethanol a year from the orange citrus waste from Florida alone, but it also promises to produce two other revenue streams from other orange peel by products in the process. I think this type of multi-output production process is something that all manufacturers should be investigating. In our disposable culture, we often disregard the value of the left-overs.
