Sanchez and Cardona, 2008, Trends in biotechnological production of fuel ethanol from different feedstocks: Bioresource Technology, v. 99, p. 5270-5295.

What’s it about?

This paper a review paper summarizing all the various sources of bioethanol (derived from crops) and the methods for obtaining that ethanol.

Why does it matter?

With current concerns about the depletion of fossil fuels, it is useful to think about potential replacements.

Why did I read this?

As noted earlier, I’ve been on a bit of an ethanol jag of late. This is a decent summary of the state of the science ten years ago.
