Ethanol exploration

Generous grants, funded by Ohio Corn & Wheat, recently provided classroom supplies to Ohio teachers who’d attended Feed the World workshops in the past.

Rebecca Baxter of Champion High School requested ethanol distillation equipment. Her students recently performed the ethanol lab with cracked corn.

“The students really liked the process,” Baxter said. “I’m going to try it with cornmeal and corn flour to compare the results.”
