ABSTRACT
The article discusses the potential of ethanol as an alternative energy source in the United States. There is an increasing demand for ethanol as a replacement for methyl tertiary-butyl ether, which is being phased out due to public health concerns. Several companies in the country are showing interest in the ethanol market. These are Archer Daniels Midland Co., Monsanto and Iogen Corp. Also, private equity firms are helping the industry to raise funds for ethanol projects.
