EXCITING GROWTH AREAS

Produce biofuels to displace oil consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Washington has declared that by 2010, America's annual fuel consumption must include 100 million gallons of advanced biofuels. By 2022, 21 billion gallons of fuel must come from sources other than food crops. Archer Daniels Midland has partnered with Deere and Monsanto to turn cornfield waste (the parts of the plants not eaten) into fuel. With support from GM, Warrenville (Ill.)-based renewable energy firm Coskata is working on a system to break down cellulosic biomass—as well as certain kinds of trash—and convert it to biofuel.
