Citrus peels could yield 80 million gal of ethanol per year

This is just one example of research into converting under-utilized waste streams into ethanol. Sweet potatoe waste, for instance, shows great promise. All these new feedstocks put together could make a real dent in fossil fuel imports. -- Jeffrey Goettemoeller

" 10,000-gallon pilot facility is currently under construction, and should be finished by sometime this year. With further research, according to Widmer, Florida's citrus peel waste could yield up to 80 million gallons of ethanol per year."
