At this year's NAIAS, General Motors is announcing their partnership with Coskata, as they believe in taking the first step toward producing a new biofuel. Called A Next Generation Ethanol Company, they have patented microorganisms and bioreactor designs that produce ethanol for less than a dollar a gallon, about half the cost of producing a gallon of gasoline. Household garbage, old tires, and even plant stalk after harvest all contain carbon which can be turned into fuel for our cars and trucks, cheaply and efficiently. This new technology also reduces CO2 emissions up to 84 percent compared to gasoline. The partnership builds on the automaker’s 25 years of biofuel research and approach to providing energy alternatives for automobiles.
