Ethanol in pipelines may expand in U.S.

Transporting ethanol via pipeline has gone so well for Kinder Morgan Energy Partners - in its 105-mile pipeline between Tampa and Orlando - that it is now evaluating shipping ethanol via its Plantation pipeline.

This pipeline goes from Louisiana to Virginia.

According to a Reuters report: "We are evaluating the Plantation pipeline ... as the next possible pipeline system that can handle ethanol," Jim Lelio, a renewable fuels business development director at the company, told the Alternative Fuels & Vehicles conference last week.

Some folks still say ethanol can't be shipped via pipeline - but Kinder Morgan (and the entire country of Brazil) says otherwise.
