Data from University of Ontario Provide New Insights into Ethanol
July 15th, 2011
According to the authors of a study from Oshawa, Canada, "In this paper, a comprehensive study on corn-based ethanol in a Canadian context is conducted, which uses the most reliable and up to date data, considers realistic assumptions, and applies sound methodology to provide a basis for developing future scenarios for corn-based ethanol and compared the results with the conventional fuel, such as gasoline. It is estimated that the net energy value (NEV), defined as the energy content of a liter of ethanol minus the total energy use to produce a liter of ethanol, is 9.6MJL(-1) (LHV), when co-products energy credits are not considered."
"In addition, a comparison of life...
