Bio Ethanol Production and Raw Materials

Ethanol Bio-fuel production and raw materials

Ethanol can be used as an gasoline extender in "gasohol" - which is

  • petrol (gasoline) with up to approximately 25% ethanol

Ethanol can be produced by fermenting different raw materials. The ethanol yields for some typical used raw materials are indicated below
