Gasohol, a mixture of 10 percent agriculturally derived anhydrous ethanol and 90 per- cent unleaded gasoline, has become a commercially viable alternative, given current agricultural and energy prices, and the level of Federal and State subsidies. S.C. Bhatia, in Advanced Renewable Energy Systems, Aldehydes. Formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and other aldehydes are produced when alcohols are oxidised. When only a 10 per cent mixture of ethanol is added to gasoline (as is common in American E10 gasohol and elsewhere), aldehyde emissions increase 40 per cent. Some study results are conflicting on . Gasohol. Gasohol is a term used for the mixture of 10% ethyl alcohol (also called ethanol or grain alcohol) with l raises the octane rating of lead-free automobile fuel and significantly decreases the carbon monoxide released from tailpipes. It has also been promoted as a means of reducing corn surpluses.

Gasohol can be used in most modern and light duty vehicles with an internal combustion. Gasohol is useful in decreasing the populations dependence on foreign oil, and reduces the carbon monoxide emissions by up to 30 percent. The ethanol typically used in the Gasohol production is derived from fermenting agricultural crops. James G. Speight, in Fuel Cells: Technologies for Fuel Processing, Gasohol. In the late twentieth century, the rising price of petroleum (and hence of gasoline) led to the increasing use of gasohol, which is a mixture of 90% unleaded gasoline and 10% ethanol (ethyl alcohol).Gasohol burns well in gasoline engines and is a desirable alternative fuel for certain . Abstract A review is provided of biomass and bioconversion technology literature, giving particular attention to gasohol and related fuels. Literature cited and reviewed covers a variety of subjects such as properties of biomass, overviews of bioconversion technologies, toxic and hazardous properties of alcohols, and sources of biomass.
