Abstract

In the United States, approximately 365 million gallons of gasoline are used every day. Although it is used for many other purposes, the majority of gasoline is used for transportation. Unfortunately, the production and use of gasoline has many harmful effects on both human health and on the environment. Cellulosic biofuel (informally known as grassoline) is a plant-based substitute for ethanol used in gasoline, developed in an effort to reduce its harmful effects. This research project takes a look at the positive and negative aspects of cellulosic biofuel and explores the world's methods of fuel consumption in the near and distant future.
