  33. The maximum % of ethanol that can be created during fermentation is about
  34. The ASU biodiesel facility uses a two stage reaction to make biodiesel which means
    Only 70% of the methoxide is added originally and circulated for 1 hour. Then the glycerin is drained off and the rest of the methoxide is reacted.
  35. to be used as a fuel in an internal combustion engine alcohol should be atleast
