Bill Jones Interviewed on WXXI News Radio about "Potentially Better Ethanol"

a radio show with WXXI News, featured Professor Jones, when their Monthly Science Roundtable asked the question:

"What if science could fix one of our country's big energy mistakes?"


Evan Dawson, host of Connections with WXXI News, states that:

"A decade ago, government was all-in on corn-based ethanol. This produced bad results on a number of levels: environmental, energy efficiency, the impact on food and crop rotation, etc.

But now a team led by a researcher at the University of Rochester is zeroing in on a method to make ethanol much more efficient, and much less corrosive. Will it work?"
