Fermentation utilizes organic substrates and organic electron acceptors to produce reduced organic substances as end-products. Bioethanol has a number of advantages over conventional fuels because it is produced from renewable resources. Ethanol is a high octane fuel that can replace lead as an octane enhancer in petrol by helping to oxygenate the fuel mixture so it burns more completely and reduces polluting emissions. The burning of ethanol more closely represents a natural carbon dioxide cycle since the released CO2 is recycled back into plants where the carbon dioxide becomes the carbon source for new sugars, starches and cellulose...
