Ethanol is domestically produced from renewable plant sources. It is non-toxic, biodegradable and, safe to handle, store and transport. It is an oxygenated fuel that contains 35% oxygen and reduces nitrogen oxide emissions from combustion. Apart from this, Ethanol as a fuel also helps reduce carbon monoxide emissions, particulate matter and sulphur-di-oxide. Use of Ethanol as a fuel will also reduce dependence on the import of petroleum and increase energy security.
