Miscanthus. 12x more ethanol per acre than corn

A breakthrough by CoolPlanet Biofuels claims that an advanced bioenergy crop, giant Miscanthus, allows them to create upwards of 4,000 gallons of cellulosic gasoline per acre, about 12-times better than corn ethanol. That means more fuel from less land.
