Ethanol Page

      Biomass energy
Ethanol, the most widely used biofuel, is made by fermenting biomass in a process
similar to brewing beer. Currently, most of the 1.5 billion gallons of ethanol used in the U.S. each
year is made from corn and blended with gasoline to improve vehicle performance and reduce air
pollution.
