Ethanol has taken its lumps from some elements of environmentalist groups lately, but now General Motors is making a new effort to win their hearts and minds (and the hearts and minds of average consumers) with a new partnership that could change the way people look at the "biofuel." GM has teamed with a company called Coskata that has put together a new, more efficient method of producing ethanol using, not corn or other foodstuffs, but things that are commonly regarded as waste today. Coskata head Bill Rowe outlines his company's breakthrough plans in this exclusive interview.
