Raw materials used for Ethanol Bio-fuel production.
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
