Two competitive routes to making ethanol-III: Some refineries may prefer one to the other
Mar 07: Clearly, two different new-generation routes are available to make ethanol by the Indian refinery majors
The routes are:

8Bio-mass route: Sophisticated bio-refineries use state-of-the-art technologies to convert grains, corns, beverage and food waste, cellulosic biomass and other feed stocks into high-octane ethanol. This route is now being pushed heavily by a Indian monopoly which seems to have developed its own technology
8Waste Gases route: The mixtures of carbon mono-oxide and hydrogen from Industrial waste gases (still mill, MSW syngas etc.) can be used to produce ethanol using a bio-catalyst based technology. Hydrogen unit PSA Off-gas containing CO+H2+CO2 can be also used for ethanol production. Indigenous refinery R&D is being put to use to optimize this route.
Which route is more economical is the real question
