This publication on the economic feasibility of fuel alcohol production is based upon research conducted at South Dakota State University (SDSU) from 1981 through 1983. It is a companion to our recently published report entitled Small Scale Plant: Costs of Making Fuel Alcohol (SDSU Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletin 686, September 1982). That bulletin detailed the costs involved in fuel alcohol production. The present bulletin compares those costs to estimated returns from fuel alcohol and the feed byproduct. Both costs and returns are calculated on a 1981 basis.
