I just read in the St. Paul Pioneer press today 11/22/06, that a 12 million gallon ethanol factory will be opening up in northern Iowa. The article prompted me to think if this ethanol technology takes off, what will that mean for the water supply/shortage and wondered if ocean salt water would work in the process of producing ethanol. [The article in question can be found at http://www.twincities.com/mld/twincities/business/16070803.htm. -- Mod]
Re: When producing ethanol, can salt water from the ocean be used?
