IE-CBHI is only grown in very small plots, between one and five acres. This amount of corn is insignificant when compared to the 96.5 million of acres of corn grown in the US (US Department of Agriculture, 2012). We offer no competition to the food or feed supply.  Also, our objective is to utilize all the co-products of the maize plant after extracting our enzymes to be used in other types of industrial applications. Stalks and leaves will be utilized in the cellulosic biofuel industry and the endosperm from seeds will be used in another industrial application.
