Why not combine two of our biggest environmental issues and come up with a winning recipe? Kudzu and other non-native invasive plants represent a huge threat. Millions of acres of land are covered in these aggressive, fast growing species.

Instead of turning corn (an important source of nutrients for people and cattle) into fuel, lets use invasive plants! A fellow in Tennessee is producing something he calls Kudzunol by fermenting Kudzu-and he’s sold every drop he can make thus far.
