The New York Times reports that two ethanol giants are talking about joining forces.

Undisputed ethanol production king ADM met with with ethanol’s financial guru Vinod Khosla to “discuss opportunities they might pursue together” regarding cellulosic ethanol according to ADM CEO Patricia Woertz.

ADM has a solid investment in ethanol from corn while Khosla, the founding chief executive of Sun Microsystems, has been investing in companies working on cellulosic ethanol and other alternative fuels.

Both Woertz and Khosla will be speaking at the USDA/DOE Renewable Energy Conference on Wednesday.
