...Ethanol Early history is full of documentation, even as early as 9,000 B.C., depicting how ancient people made and used ethanol as a psychoactive recreational drug. The fermentation of sugar into ethanol is one of the earliest known organic reactions created by mankind. Ethanol has been widely used by nearly every civilization and still continues to this day. Now, as the quest for a replacement for fossil fuels drives research, ethanol has taken a vital place in the energy needs of the future. Ethanol was not used as a fuel until Samuel Morey developed the first combustion engine in 1824; it ran on ethanol and turpentine. It was mostly used industrially and for lamps until 1862, when the U.S...

...Ethanol Fossil fuels have polluted our environment in last one hundred years or so leading to global warming and climate change. Of late many countries have promoted the use of alcohol as bio-fuel blending with fossil fuels in a certain ratio; however, promotion of ethanol as a bio-fuel is now highly questionable. Studies reveal that environmental impact of ethanol as bio-fuel is much higher than that of gasoline and other fossil fuels. The paper aims at exploring how ethanol is more damaging to our environment and its use as energy source cannot be encouraged.

Environmental, social, economic, fuel life cycle in addition to engine design are some of the factors affecting adoption of ethanol as a biofuel (Larsen, Johansen and Schramm 2009). With increasing environmental concern and sustainable development, the development of fuels with capability of the reducing greenhouse gas emissions with added advantage of being renewable is gaining favor (Larsen & Sønderberg 2007).
