Britain has started diluting petrol with 2.5% biofuel. When petrol is diluted you need to fill up more often and that costs money. So the reward for corn ethanol companies going bust is cheaper transport and cheaper food.

Another one bites the dust. Sad to see, given the good intentions these companies generally have, but the original business models were just too flawed.

so chapter 11 it is then, good bye to your investment. that they need $4m of working cap to carry on shows that even if they have sold more ethanol it doesnt mean that they made any profit

Why does it have to be corn when you can use the husks? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellulosic_ethanol

If you can grow fuel for less than it costs to pump it out of the ground or dig it up it makes perfect sense. But at $6 per bushel of corn and 3 gallons per bushel ethanol production yield, the cost of corn is $2 per gallon of ethanol made. $2 * 42 gallons per barrel makes $84 per barrel of ethanol spent just on corn. Since ethanol has about half the energy content of petrol that makes the corn cost around $168 per barrel of oil equivalent. Then add on the cost of coal to heat the distillery. At the moment about 1/5 of US corn is used to make ethanol, but what is going to happen to the price of corn with Bush's plans to increase ethanol production 5 fold?

In 5-10 years second generation biofuels will use agricultural waste and help to be the saviour on all fronts. Wont help the 1st generation companies though. CM.

In 5 - 10 years the biofuels industry will vanish. Using foods as fuel is simply crazy. Damaging on all fronts.

Dont forget to factor in the rising raw material costs And it'll only recover if it doesnt go bust first

Could be a good recovery play in the making, particularly with oil at current levels Time will tell

http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/natural_resources/article3694554.ece Last week Renova, an AIM-listed ethanol manufacturer, confirmed that it was struggling to secure finance for a 21 million-gallon plant in Idaho, and last month Pacific Ethanol, a Californian producer, disclosed big quarterly losses, cost overruns and bank loan defaults as the cost of corn hit its margins. "Financial markets have been spooked [by the present price of corn]," Christopher Thomas, the chairman of Renova, said. "Two years ago the cost of corn was $2 a bushel; now it has reached $6. As the feedstock goes up, your margin is squeezed."
