In the past 10 years the number of fuel ethanol plants has more than tripled to meet the demand for a clean renewable domestic fuel.
Currently fuel ethanol is made by converting starchy grains, cellulose and waste streams from other industries into simple sugars which are then fermented into ethanol by yeast. While the practice of fermenting ethanol has been around since roughly 10,000 B.C.E. it is only recently that it has been produced in such massive quantities for fuel. Modern technology is creating more efficient and economical ways to produce ethanol in order to assure America’s energy security.
Every gallon of ethanol made in the United States is consumed in the United States and displaces oil imported from foreign sources. In the future as political mandates are passed, oil sources diminish and energy prices climb, ethanol will be essential in securing is America’s infrastructure and political freedom from foreign oil producing countries. CTE Global, INC. is proud to play a role in helping to provide the substrate for fermentation and indirectly in the security of America’s future.
