Bioethanol Fuel 2

Bioethanol fuel is (Bioethanol Fuel. Com) “mainly produced by the

sugar fermentation process, although it can be manufactured by the chemical

process of reacting ethylene with steam” Bioethanol comes from an renewable

resource that mainly grows in the United Kingdom. Kerosene is (A

Comparisons of Three Kerosene Fuel Surrogates and Their Corresponding

Chemical Kinetic Mechanisms; by Heidi Hollick) “A thin oil distilled from

petroleum or shale oil.” It’s mainly used in heating and cooking lamps and was

also distributed from the United Kingdom. Gasoline is made from proceeded

crude oil, it is mainly used to power cars. The purpose of this project is to

produce a desired effect of Bioethanol fuel against the other types of fuel. The

experiment will compare the energy being produced by each fuel and the

burning time.

The main source of sugar required to produce ethanol come from fuel or

energy crops. These crops are only grown to produce energy; corn, maize and

wheat crops, waste straw, willow and popular trees, sawdust, reed canary grass,

cord grasses, Jerusalem artichoke, myscanthus and sorghum plants. There’s a

new research of municipal solid wastes to produce ethanol fuels.

Bioethanol Fuel 3

Ethanol can be produced from biomass by the hydrolysis and sugar

Fermentation processes. Biomass wastes contain a complex mixture of

carbohydrates polymers from the plant cell walks known as cellulose, hemi

cellulose and legin. In order to produce sugars from the biomass is pre-treated

with acids or enzymes in order to reduce the size of the feedstock and to open

up the plant structures.

However, the hypothesis was that gasoline will have the highest energy

produced and it will have an shorter burning time. To...
