Corn as Heat

On today's Talk of the Nation on NPR, the topic had something to do with minimizing heating costs. A caller phoned in to say that he heats his shop with corn fuel. I have heard of people burning corn for fuel before, but this is the most articulate explanation I have heard of the practice. Evidently, several manufacturers make corn-fueled furnaces. The corn demand helps the farmers. The caller was from Minnesota, and he said that the local newsstations in his state have been doing stories on corn fuel. I wouldn't mind learning more about this. Not that I am going to go out and buy a corn heater, but it is an interesting topic. Supposedly, corn heat is more economical than natural gas, propane or oil for the caller.
