Ethanol fuel production costs can be lowered

Agricultural Research Service scientists are demonstrating that they can reduce ethanol fuel production costs by developing less expensive techniques for milling the corn used to make the fuel.

Computers are playing a key role in this research at the ARS Eastern Regional Research Center (ERRC), in Wyndmoor, Pa., where scientists have completed several computer research models for performing cost analyses for ethanol production.
