Is corn still the best ethanol that we have made so far?

    If “best” means the most efficient source of energy from ethanol, then no, sugar cane is a significantly better source than corn. If “we” means the USA, then yes, corn is the primary source of US-made ethanol. Brazil’s ethanol derives mostly from sugar cane.

    Corn ethanol is good at making plastic, however.  Corn plastics hopefully will replace petroleum plastics in the near future.
