Ethanol plants using hops to eliminate bacteria

Image
An increasing number of ethanol companies are using hops to fight off nasty bacteria that can harm ethanol plant operations, according to Minnesota Public Radio in St. Paul, Minn.

Hops have been a long-time ingredient for the beer industry, and are known for anti-bacteria qualities.
