Abstract

This documentary video investigates the production and combustion of ethanol. Specifically, it focuses on corn-based ethanol, since it is the most used liquid biofuel in the U.S. It also includes the process of extracting energy from various types of nuts. The history behind biofuel use and the scientific concepts relating to the process of fermentation and ethanol extraction are explored. This video also addresses current applications of ethanol based biofuel use in the U.S., the associated hazards, and the economic impacts of these biofuels. Lastly, it includes a short film clip showing a live example of obtaining energy from ethanol and peanuts. This documentary provides viewers with a basic understanding of the biofuel production process along with the pros and cons of using it.
