R&D Seed Grant: Feasibility of Ethanol Production from Sweet Sorghum in Kentucky

Grants and Contracts Details


The goal of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing sweet sorghum as an alternative feedstock for ethanol production. This supports the goals of the Kentucky 2005 Comprehensive Energy Strategy to increase the production of ethanol within the state. Currently all ethanol produced in Kentucky is from com grain and alternative feedstocks will be required if ethanol production continues to grow. There are growing concerns that there will not be enough com to supply increased ethanol production highlighted by the President's State of the Union Address.
