Fuel ethanol is formed by the process of microbial fermentation of sugar. The fermentation process takes place with help of two major components of plants, starch, and cellulose; both made up of sugars and can be converted to sugars for fermentation. Fuel ethanol is most widely used in the United States and Brazil and both countries together were responsible for 87% of the world’s fuel ethanol production in the year 2011. The Brazilian government has made it compulsory to mix ethanol with gasoline and since 2007 the legal blend is around 75% gasoline and 25% ethanol.
