Re: U.S. Said to Allow Rise in Ethanol Content in Gasoline Blends Up to 15%
There are plenty of hidden costs of corn-based ethanol production. The corollary is that the amount of domestic arable land that can be devoted to corn is limited. As the demand pull for corn accelerates (livestock feed vs. ethanol raw material), the price of corn will continue to advance - supply and demand. this will lead to deteriorating economics of ethanol production and higher costs for food based on poultry, swine, and cattle.
The less corn available for feed, means that which is available for feed will be more expensive. Period.
