Cellulosic ethanol is ethyl alcohol of ethanol produced from the stringy plant fiber called cellulose rather than from the fruit or seed of the plant. It’s a biofuel type made from plants, algae, wood, or grasses. The plant’s fibrous parts are usually inedible to humans and animals except for ruminants like sheep or cows, or animals relying on Hindgut fermentation such as rabbits and horses.

Several renewable energy experts are interested in cellulosic ethanol because of its significant economic potential. When plants grow cellulose, there’s a mechanism capturing and storing solar energy chemically in a nontoxic way.


Since trees and plants can grow anywhere in temperate regions, cellulosic ethanol is gaining more popularity as a new energy source that can replace fossil fuels, reducing the demand for continuous oil and gas drilling.

Cellulosic ethanol is also better than using grain-based biofuels, which causes a hike in food price. The major challenge presently is that this biofuel production isn’t yet in huge quantities.

Cellulosic ethanol has lots of benefits. One such benefit is its reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 85 percent over reformulated gasoline. Contrastingly, starch ethanol, a grain-based biofuel, uses natural gas to provide energy, leading to little or no reduction of greenhouse gas emissions depending on its production.
