Transcript of Ethanol

History of Ethanol Use of Ethanol Ethanol Today Ethan l A renewable fuel Ethanol might be the fuel of the future but it was also the fuel of the past. In 1903 when Henry Ford built the Ford Model T which ran on Ethanol. Ethanol was a popular fuel because at the time it was relatively cheap compared to other fuels since you didn't have to mine it. Ethanol has many uses ranging from fuel to being used
in perfumes to even explosives. Ethanol is also the waste product of all alcoholic beverages. Ethanol is also a very powerful antiseptic found in soaps. Another important use of ethanol is in paint and markers. Bibliography Ethanol in the future Ethanol is a Bio-fuel.
These fuels are generally considered a way to decrease greenhouse gasses from fossil-fuel use, reducing human-caused global warming
They contain fuels resulting from biomass alteration and also solid biomass, liquid biomass and various bio gasses THANKS FOR LISTENING! Today, the most common type of Bio-fuel is Ethanol and usually comes from corn or sugar cane. It is a good substitute for petrol but is less efficient however ethanol is more eco friendly then petrol. Ethanol also needs to be filled up more often and the process of harvesting ethanol also uses a lot of fossil fuels.
In 2011 the world's top producers of Ethanol fuel were the United States and Brazil. But in Brazil Ethanol fuel is available throughout the country Ethanol is probably the best substitute for the fuels we have today since it is easier to make and does less pollution than other fuels, however ethanol is made from corn which we use already which means we will have to grow more corn and not all regions have fields to grow it in.
