Bioethanol Alternative

Use Bioethanol Instead of Gasoline and Help Save Earth


Bio-ethanol is a biofuel. Biofuels are liquid or gas fuels made from plants or animals. Bio-ethanol is made from remaining products from food agriculture, such as straw. There is a good supply of agricultural residue that can be made into bio-ethanol. In 2006, an estimated 2.9 million tonnes of straw was available for bio-fuel.

All Positives Come with a Negative

Bio-ethanol may be great, however, there is always an unintended consequence. Straw is used to make a high-quality bio-ethanol, but it is not a very cheap waste product. On another note, the technology that is used to make bio-fuels is not fully developed, so it could take up to 10 years before they are ready to be used.
