There seems to be a food shortage going on in the world, some linked to gas prices and farmers using corn for making ethenol, rather than sell as
Something came to my mind this morning, while I was mowing my lawn. Since corn is virtually a type of grass, why can't we use grass to make
I virtually have about 20 lbs of grass that I am about to throw away, and it grows to the point where I am forced to mow my lawns every week.
Could all this wasted grass, not only from my yard, but every home I've seen can be recycled into ethanol? I don't know the scientific basis behind
it, but would grass be a more cost efficient, readily available, and almost limitless resource we can use to make ethanol, rather than corn?
