Transcript of Ethanol Production From Corn

Ethanol Production From Corn How does ethanol production from
corn contribute to enviromental change? Chemical Equation: Reatants How does this relates to the real world? Glucose ---> Ethanol+Carbon Dioxide+Energy There are catalysts in this reaction What is a catalyst? catalyst-a substance that initiates or accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected
something that causes an important event to happen 3 C 6 H 12 o 6 ---> 2 CH CH OH+ 2 2 CO 2 Balanced Equation Carbon:6 Hydrogen:12 Oxygen:6 Products Carbon:6 Hydrogen:12 Oxygen:6 ATP +ATP Summary of What I learned: The chemical equation for ethanol made from corn is a balanced equation.I also learned that it reduces harmful tailpipe emissions of carbon monoxide, particle matter, oxides of nitrogen, and other ozone-forming pollutants. Even though this makes ethanol produced from corn seem like a good thing, there are also some down sides to it. The main thing scientist are predicting is that it may leave our world hungry. Right now statics show that about 14 million of grain consumption go to producing fuel, while only 6 million are going to the hungry.Another thing this is affecting is the price of grains which isn't a good thing for those who already can barely afford food.
