Although research is underway and a few plants have been built to create cellulosic ethanol by fermenting materials such as agricultural residue, algae, wood processing waste, yard and vegetative waste, food processing waste, etc., field corn is the feedstock used to create 98 percent of the bioethanol produced in the United States.1
