Dupont technology helps Broin boost ethanol output

CHICAGO, Oct 6 (Reuters) - A large producer of U.S. ethanol plans to use not only corn to produce the alternative fuel but cellulosic materials such as corn cobs and stalks.

The Broin Companies in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, announced this week it has licensed technology to covert cellulosic biomass into ethanol from chemicals group DuPont (DD.N: Quote, Profile, Research).

The Broin plants would extract fiber from corn and convert it into ethanol, producing a higher-protein distillers dried grain for the livestock market.

The plants would also convert corn stalks and cobs into ethanol, plus use some of that material to fuel the plant. The duel-processing plant would use 83 percent less natural gas than a plant processing only corn, the company said.story continued
