Behind The Lines - June/July 2008

Grain-based ethanol turned from an environmental darling to a pariah in a far shorter time than it took grain producers to put together capital and build a processing plant. A plant that is scheduled to come into production shortly was a natural place for us to go to illustrate a story about the future of ethanol.

Visiting an ethanol plant that is under construction can be an interesting experience, as Better Farming’s photographer Rachel Lincoln found out at the Integrated Grain Processors Co-operative (IGPC) site in Aylmer recently.

The places where she could shoot photographs were greatly restricted.
