Corn Ethanol And Soybean Biodiesel Studied

Jul 11, 2006 - The Post Chronicle

MINNEAPOLIS, July 11, 2006 (UPI) -- The first comprehensive U.S. analysis of the life cycles of soybean biodiesel and corn grain ethanol shows biodiesel performs better than corn ethanol.

The University of Minnesota study suggests soybean biodiesel has much less of an impact on the environment and a much higher net energy benefit than does corn ethanol, but neither can do much to meet U.S. energy demand.
