What is Ethanol?
Probably the most ubiquitous of biofuels in that its use is common (in relatively low
percentages, increased in 2010 to 15%) in conventional gasoline, ethanol has also
become of the most controversial, as the former boom in corn-based product has
given way to concerns over the alcohol fuel’s impact on food supplies.
Thus a key emphasis is on development of cellulosic ethanol, based on agricultural
or timber industry waste, or other ingredient materials, But while cellulosic ethanol
doesn’t affect food markets, it awaits real commercial vibility.
