You don't need to replace foodstock to produce ethanol
It can be done from the part of the crop the we don't use to eat

Fermenting the lot to make natural gas would work too

That sounds like a good use of leftovers.

While I have only seen vegetable-based ethanol, biomethane has the advantage of being able to resort to the leftovers of slaughterhouses and meat proccessing plants too.
