The alternative fuels such as ethanol produced from renewable lignocellulosic resources or fuels produced from seawater.
In only 20 percent of total sugarcane produced in Brazil was used for ethanol production while the rest was used to produce sugar. Among molasses derived products ethanol takes the largest part, but its utilization must attract the attention of the government policy makers in order to utilize as a bioethanol.
It is finite resource, gas supplies and oil reserves are shrinking, will definitely run out in the future. Due to this incentive along with process innovation POET has grown into an industry leader. This is an important matter because it affects global energy security, food security, the environment, and economies.
Energy from lignin residue burning was found sufficient to meet the steam requirement in the production process. Our ancestors used this form of fuel for obvious reasons such as to keep warm, and for cooking.
In the biochemical conversion process, biomass is converted to ethanol by sequential steps of pretreatment to reduce the recalcitrance of biomasshydrolysis conversion of sugar polymers to monomers and fermentation sugars to ethanol.
Some are used for food as well as fuel, while others are cultivated exclusively for ethanol; even plant-based wastes can become ethanol.
Ethanol as well as other bio-fuels produced from plant biomass are alternative to fossil fuels. Ethanol will solve the energy crisis.
Henry Ford considered it the fuel of choice.
