Interesting. By rights the ethanol crowd should actually endorse this (after the mandatory negative lobbying).

Hopefully testing under real life conditions and tests for toxicity will give it a go. I'm cautious here because I remember MTBE. Putting aside the toxicity issues it's chemical actions almost cost me my life. Under certain conditions MTBE in gasoline and when exposed to alcohol based fuel additives intended for water removal, cause the fuel to gel and plug up fuel filters. This is inconvenient when you're 80 miles from the next human, on a mountain, it's approaching -72F and there's a 35 knot wind:) It was an interesting night.


I came across a great contest for non-profit business professionals at www.svn.org/imaginewhatsnext They
are holding a contest to reward business leaders for starting or running socially responsible companies. This seems to be a growing trend!

Sounds like they aught to get with someone from your team and use this “waste” as a good source of sugar.
