What is Ethanol?
Ethanol is ethyl alcohol, essentially 200-proof grain alcohol used as a motor fuel. An ethanol plant (production facility or “biorefinery”) produces pure fuel-grade ethanol, and then that ethanol is blended in a percentage with gasoline to create a finished motor fuel. A small amount of gasoline is blended into the ethanol at the plant to denature it, or make it unfit for human consumption.
