Ethanol or ethyl alcohol is a colorless volatile flammable liquid produced by the natural fermentation of sugars and is mainly used as a biofuel and fuel oxygenate. It serves as an important component in alcoholic beverages and biofuel. Ethanol is majorly blended with gasoline to manufacture motor spirits. It provides a renewable alternative to gasoline and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Ethanol has a higher octane value than gasoline which allows for more compression before ignition and better fuel efficiency. The Indian government has laid down norms for mandatory blending of fuel-grade ethanol with gasoline in order to reduce dependence on crude oil imports and pollution.
