    flex fuel

    if we could only get adm to enter a branded marketing and production partnership with an exxon or shell..we would have flex fuel cars on the road in a heartbeat.
    my fear is that adm will sell off the ethanol division just as it begins to blossom..under the guise of concentrating on their 'core' products..[which dosent happen to be automobile fuel..unfortunately]....same as their selling off their stake in tate and lyle just as splenda is beginning to catch on...go figure...

    • I don't think you have to worry about ADM selling off their ethanol division. It is too well integrated into the corn process. By using corn wet milling ADM produces high fructose corn syrup, corn syrups, starches, malto-dextrins, and other corn related products from the same feed stock (corn starch). They also have co-products such as gluten, germ, fiber, etc. that is extracted from the corn. It is impossible to separate these from each other. Corn wet milling is one of ADM's "core" products and all of the above are integral parts of it.

    • From analyses I've read, ADM is everywhere in the biofuel supply chain. It would be a great catalyst to the biofuel effort if they threw their weight behind it as you say via a joint approach with an oil company and a branded name.

      Maybe they can partner with Willie Nelson! He's doing alright for a one-man crusade so far.

    • Supply follows demand not the reverse. The Oil companies would perfer to use MTBE reguardless of the water pollution problems.
      They will drag their feet as long as possible before replacing MTBE with ethanol. The cost of producing ethanol has gone down considerably recently due to technical advances. Biofuels can improve the U.S. Balance of Payments, the value of the dollar and U.S. stocks.
