Carabao Grass (Paspalumconjugatum)
A vigorous, creeping perennial with long stolons, rooting at nodes, with culms ascending to erect, 40-80(-100) cm tall, branching, solid, slightly compressed. Leaf-sheath strongly compressed, usually 30-50 mm long, ciliate on the margins; ligule collar-shaped, about 1 mm long; leaf-blade linear or lanceolate-acuminate, 8-20 cm x 5-12 mm, glabrous to sparsely pubescent. Inflorescence well exerted with two or occasionally three diverging racemes, 7-16 cm long; spikelets solitary, imbricate, flattened ovate, up to 2 mm long, with long hairs on the margins; lower glume absent, upper glume with a fringe of long hairs (1 mm) along its margin. Caryopsis broadly ovoid, plano-convex, about 1 mm. Ethanol

Ethanol, which is also known as ethyl alcohol, pure alcohol, grain alcohol, or drinking alcohol, is a volatile, flammable, colorless liquidEthanol is a renewable fuel made from plants and is a cheap alternative to gasolineYeasts are eukaryotic microorganisms and unicellar, and can be used to generate electricity in microbial fuel cells and produce ethanol. Biofuel

is a type of fuel whose energy is derived from biological carbon fixation. Biofuels include fuels derived from biomass conversion, as well assolid biomass, liquid fuels and various biogases.Biofuels are gaining increased public and scientific attention, driven by factors such as oil price hikesand the need for increased energy security. However, according to the European Environment Agency, biofuels do not address global warming concerns. Fermentation

is a process in which energy is derived from the oxidation of organic compounds, therefore producing ethanol and carbon dioxide as waste by-products.

How much amount (mL) ethanol extract are produced after the process of fermentation in grasses? What are the
