Khosla's bet on his recent startup investment Kergy and its Ethanol manufacturing process technology is spot on - a better process from Robert. E. (Bud) Klepper, that will move this dream of Ethanol to a viable and commercially competitive fuel alternative.
Innovation of Substance in Process Technology will rule the day. And may we see long overdue heartburn in Houston, Riyadh [possibly montana too?] over this... or at the minumum, a nice healthy drop in oil prices... Competition is good.

My sincerest condolences to the Oil Drum . Oil Drummers are welcome to change horses any time, even if there might be some embarrassment in doing so.
The spirit of Innovation will move markets and change paradigms, even reduce greenhouse gases and make the formerly impossible become possible.
