    Mixing ethanol with fuel has drawn a lot of attentions in community. Although some experts has confirmed that there is almost no harm to use ethanol as our fuel in our engines or cars, some people who has experienced with it in real deny that statement. We don't know which is true or false, but this issue should be put into our consideration. From the article, it seems that the small engines are worn out and easy to get damage when these are used with ethanol. Benjamin Mallisham who own a repair shop in Tuscaloosa states that the lawnmowers he had responsibility for were damaged by ethanol by 40 percents. He also claimed that ethanol melted the engines from out to inside which is the cause of the damage. The reason why I wrote that we don't know if it is right or wrong to state that ethanol destroys our engines because some experts, especially ones in the Renewable Fuels Association, tested it and concluded that it was fine. However, mechanics also used them and gave a lot of reasonable analysis about the harmful things that ethanol brings to the engines. One of the explorations was stated from Bob Magnotti that ethanol brings moisture which is the reason that reduce the engines life.…

    heard of the fuel source, Ethanol. Whether you support the idea or not, it’s at nearly every gas station across the state. Ethanol burns cleaner emissions, lowers gas prices, and is a renewable source of energy. But some think it’s not worth creating Ethanol because it raises food prices, it requires too much energy to create than what is being yielded, and there are better ways to save oil.

    let the technology drive its own economics. If ethanol is technically viable, it will discover its own place in the economy. When it is highly subsidized, there is no way to tell where it’s true economic strength lies. “Ethanol is propped up by more than 200 tax breaks and subsidies worth at least $5.5 billion a year” (Goodell). And unfortunately biofuel production is such a huge part of the U.S. economy that removing the financial support could cause an economic meltdown the full extent of…

    Introduction As the threats of climate change have increased, so has research on alternative energy. Alternative energy differs from classic fuel sources (i.e. coal, shale, natural gas) because it uses natural resources that has the ability to be consistently replaced; thus it is also termed “renewable energy.” “Biofuels” are a specific class of renewable energy that refers to biomass (versus other natural resources like sunlight) or harvested metabolites from living organisms that can be…

    An essay about Environmental, economic and energetic costs and benefits of biodiesel and ethanol biofuels. By Jason Hill et al. The authors try to determine whether ethanol, produced from corn grain, and biodiesel, produced from soybeans provide benefits over the petroleum-based fuels they displace.

    Examples of these are coal, natural gas, and petroleum. The two I will be comparing are ethanol from corn and solar energy from the sun. Solar energy is self-explanatory. We harness the power of the sun for energy. Solar panels can be put on cars, calculators, houses, and space crafts. The sunlight hits the cell, loosens the electrons, and turns it into electricity. Because of emerging technology, the energy from the sunlight can be stored on a battery. This makes it sustainable and easy to use…

Since 2005 the market for ethanol has grown exponentially. This is due largely in part by the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
