About the Ethanol Industry:

The growing interest in ethanol, a clean, corn-based renewable resource, has paralleled the escalating price of gas and the urgent need to break the country's dependence on crude oil. Recently, the Big Three automobile manufacturers, GM, Ford, and DaimlerChrysler, appealed to Congress for incentives to increase the number of gas stations that offer blends of ethanol. Last year, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates invested $84 million into Pacific Ethanol. Sir Richard Branson, chairman of the Virgin Group and worth an estimated $3 Billion, has plans to invest $300 to $400 million to produce and market this alternative fuel. Vinod Khosla, "guru" of Silicon Valley, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, and one of ethanol's most vocal advocates, has personally invested millions in private companies involved in the development of ethanol.
