Ethanol is a renewable fuel made from a variety of plant materials known as “biomass“.
Ethanol is a clear, colorless liquid, and has one of a group of compounds called “alcohols.” Hence its alternative name, “ethyl alcohol.”
More than 95% of gasoline sold in the United States contains ethanol in low volumes, up to 10%, to enhance octane and reduce air pollution.
