Why burn shelled corn?

Burning shelled corn as a fuel can be a feasible way of dealing with the high prices of more conventional fuels such as fuel oil, propane, natural gas, coal, and firewood. Utilizing corn as a fuel does not compete with the food supply needed for nourishment throughout the world. Shelled corn's low emissions make it an extremely environmentally friendly, renewable heating fuel choice.
