    very poorly. corn ethanol is not viable because to grow the corn and process into ethanol requires more energy put into it the entire process than would be stored in the ethanol created. the ethanol is environmentally friendlier as it does not give off harmful emissions as gasoline does. algae ethanol or biofuel is much more viable an option than corn ethanol, it requires less energy to produce and you get more fuel in less time and less energy to put into the production process.
