Ethonal Production from Corn
Transcript of Ethonal Production from Corn
The future role of ethanol is likely to be much more of a fuel additive than merely a fuel. This additive will be designed to help the country achieve cleaner air, first, and to save on imported oil, second. Pros and Cons of Ethanol production from corn Pros: Ethanol is a good alterinative for fuel. It provides cleaner air for us which will lower pollution.
Cons: Ethanol capacity will reach an estimated 11.4 billion gallons per year, and by the end of 2008, it will require 35% of the total U.S. corn crop even with a good harvest. More estimates predict that ethanol plants could consume up to half of domestic corn supplies within a few years. 9 Carbon 18 Hydrogen 9 Oxygen Catalyst: A substance that accelerates a chemical reaction without itself being affected.
Impact on me: This is a balanced equation, because when you distribute the 2 on the right part of the equation, it is the same equation on the left. Having a balanced eqation is very important, because you will then be able to use your equation. This research on ethanol production from corn had a negative impact on me because using corn for making ethanol consumes so much of our corn, that it will make our food prices go up, and may take up most of our corn. I think that we should try to search for better alternatives for making ethanol that will not hurt us or our food industry.
