ABSTRACT
The article deals with a joint venture formed by DuPont and BP to develop, produce, and market butanol made from sugar beets to be used as a gasoline blending component as of June 28, 2006. The joint venture will initially produce biobutanol from sugar beets using British Sugar's bioethanol pilot plant, which is being built in England. Analysts are concerned about the plant's commercial viability. However, the companies say there are issues to address with today's bio-components.
