ABSTRACT
The article reports on the impact of the expansion of biofuel plants on the status of the industry in the U.S. According to economist Chris Hurt, the industry will collapse if the price of corn will increase and the ethanol plants cannot make up the losses. The ethanol expansion is going to bid up the price of the raw material where it is not profitable to use.
