Company Claims 12X More BioFuel Yield Per Acre Than Corn Ethanol

Here is a source quoting similar numbers for switchgrass/miscanthus. I am biased towards miscanthus because my family owned land that might be perfect for it, semi arid, prone to erosion and not suitable for irrigation. We no longer own that land but I am still intrigued by the potential. Plus, can you imagine the impact of growing miscanthus up to 8 feet high instead of regular wheatgrass? Plus Wikipedia has numbers up to 3250 gallons of ethanol per acre, which lends indirect support to the possibility that 4000 gallons is possible. http://grist.org/climate-energy/biofuel-some-numbers/
