According to testimony at a hearing conducted by the subcommittee of the Minnesota House agriculture committee the House agriculture program and policies subcommittee concluding a three City tour of the state in Hartland was seeking testimony on a proposed Bill to promote the development and use of gasohol distilled in Minnesota according to rep. Henry Kalis Del Walters there was t a discouraging word at any of the meetings gasohol proponents seemed in abundance at the hearing in the Hartland school gymnasium. Most were Content to let one or two do the talking. The panel was told that alcohol distilled from Corn to be used in gasohol can be produced in Small quantities on farms at a Cost that makes gasohol competitive with gasoline Jim Hendrickson of Hartland who has worked with producing alcohol said stressed Corn that would have been fed to cattle or wasted can be cooked up on the farm and brewed into alcohol at a Cost of about 72 cents a gallon a about the same Price that is being paid for regular Gas these Days. He said that in order to reach that Cost Farmers would have to sell the leftover protein Rich residue As feed Hendrickson said that As far As the feed aspect is concerned a Bushel of moldy Corn that would be unfit for feed can be distilled leaving a useable feed that is More valuable than the original Corn and the alcohol. Hendrickson said Small plants such As Farmers would use Are More Cost efficient than larger commercial plants which studies in Illinois have said would use More Energy to produce the alcohol than the alcohol would provide smaller on farm stills Cix Iid be fuelled by Cornstalk Wood scraps old crankcase Oil anything that would provide heat and could be controlled. Leroy Deichmann of Mankato a Corn production agronomist for the Minnesota waxy Corn growers association a non profit or clip of about 350 member Farmers said his group is considering gasohol highly As a potential Market for their product. He scoffed at the idea that the technology to produce gasohol economically is not available a a it a our own ignorance that keeps us from getting the alcohol out of the Corn a he said a we should put our resources together a Pool them a and develop this kind of technology. I believe that something that is impossible is Only something we Haven to Learned How Todo vet a members of the panel were just As enthusiastic about gasohol As those testifying rep Dave Fjoslien the chief author of the Bill to promote development of gasohol proclaimed himself to be a Quot gasohol cd and said Quot i firmly believe that we As Farmers can not Only feed but fuel the nation Quot the Bill As proposed would reduce the state gasoline tax two cents per gallon on gasohol which contains alcohol distilled in this state from Minnesota products and is used in vehicles on Public highways. The Bill would also set up a a a Minnesota agricultural products Industrial utilization boards within the Minnesota department of agriculture which would be responsible for a program to test evaluate develop and promote gasohol representatives asked about the effect of gasohol on the Price of Corn Deichmann said it Cix Iid Only make it go up but Hendricks said gasohol production would have to be very High for prices to go As High As $3 a Bushel Hendrickson in response to another question said the danger of gasohol or alcohol exploding or blowing up in stills was slight alcohol he said Burns at a much higher temperature than gasoline and that a Mountain stills which Are even cheaper than the kind we Are talking about a Are the kind of stills that blow up usually from a fault in the boiler.
