Race on to develop pipes to transport ethanol

This article takes a good look at the pipeline situation and how ethanol may or may not be shipped through existing pipelines. The article indicates that a new, ethanol-only pipeline would cost over $1 million per mile. Kinder Morgan is preparing to test a run of 8000 gallons of ethanol through its Florida underground gasoline pipeline. Another company, Teppco Partners, ran 6500 gallons of ethanol in their pipeline last year. The fuel had to be filtered at the receiving end because “it picked up three decades worth of impurities” in the pipeline.
