Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but a fuel with EROEI < 1 that is not converting a less portable energy source into a more portable one is not viable.

Like ethanol from Italian wine.

Inte ens när det gäller utsläpp av koldioxid erbjuder Stockholms etanolbussar någon miljömässig fördel. Stockholms Lokaltrafik köper nämligen etanol gjord på italienskt vin. Odling, tillverkning och transporter ger så stora utsläpp av koldioxid, att vanlig dieselolja är bättre. Even when in emissions of carbon dioxide offers Stockholm ethanol buses no environmental benefit. Stockholm Transport buys namely ethanol made from Italian wine. Cultivation, production and transport produce such large emissions of carbon dioxide, to regular diesel oil is better.
