During the North American International Auto Show, (NAIAS) one of the most important announcements I heard was made by GM Chairman Rick Wagoner, who announced a partnership with Coskata, a Warrensville, IL, biology-based ethanol producer. The company uses proprietary microorganisms and patented bioreactor designs to turn biomass, municipal solid waste and other carbonaceous material to produce ethanol for under US$1.00 per gallon. I spoke with Coskata’s founder Todd Kimmel and GM’s Alan Adler about the partnership and the implications for consumers and the world at large.
