This technical note presents basic background information on the technology, economic forces, and non-market issues that affect ethanol''s supply, distribution, and demand. It recognizes significant controversies but does not attempt to summarize or resolve the national conversation about ethanol, which in 2006 included many voices and remained highly charged. The note is structured to begin with the basic process of producing ethanol, and presents other undisputed information about the current state of ethanol production, distribution, and usage. It then explores trends, projections, and disputes about contemporary technology; discusses emerging innovations; and concludes with an exploration of several non-market issues associated with ethanol in the United States.
