In his recent “State of the Nation” address, President Bush pledged to invest in alternative energy technologies such as bioethanol to replace petroleum. Because the transportation sector, unlike other energy-consuming sectors, has remained almost completely dependent on petroleum fuels, it has gradually required an increased share of the petroleum market. Already, the North American transportation sector by itself consumes more petroleum than is produced in the continent. This level of dependency cannot continue indefinitely – Bioethanol can be used as a fuel as it comes from a renewable source, and is carbon neutral. This talk introduces the huge field of Bioprocess engineering of ethanol from corn starch.
