Gasohol, a mixture of 90 percent unleaded gasoline and 10 percent anhydrous alcohol, has become commercially viable as a motor fuel because of Federal and State subsidies and high prices for petroleum. Significant alcohol production using corn as a feed- stock would lead to higher corn production and prices and somewhat lower soybean pro-. Similarly, the acreage consumed in gasohol production and the activities in its distribution is a visual concern. Miles Fry of Ephrata, Pennsylvania, reports that hybrid poplars (2' on center in 3'-6″ spaced rows) yield about kg (10 lbs)/tree/year (1,, gal of ethanol/ acre), and that these trees can be grown on land not suitable for farming.   The concentration of ethanol in gasohol was (and still is) limited to 10 vol%. The National Energy Act of provided the tax advantages that promoted ethanol's quick introduction into the gasoline pool. In about 20 million gallons of ethanol were used in the production of gasohol (Wakim et al., ).

know about the production of gasohol. The first 50 pages, covering the "Introduction to Gasohol," do not give the impression, moreover, that the book will be limited to farmer-produced gasohol. It gives a complete background on the factors leading up to the movement in the United States for the production and distribution of the gasoline. Published March This report concerns the economics of the fermentation of biomass to produce ethanol for making gasohol. Biomass, as defined by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, includes all above-ground, below-ground, and aquatic plant materials. Gasohol’s practical potential depends on the time the next years, domestic gasohol production will be limited primarily by the rate that new distilleriesare built and idle capacitv converted. Conversion should bring thefuel ethanol capacity to an estimated million gallons per year by the end of This would yield Livestock Brand Book The Livestock Brand Book is published following the completion of the renewal of registered brands for Washington state.

Repository Boise State University Library, Special Collections and Archives Special Collections and Archives University Drive Boise ID Telephone: archives. A final chapter reviews case histories of synthetic petroleum fuel production in Brazil - the international leader in developing alcohol-fueled transportation systems. This book is much more than a reference source for the energy industry - it is a user-oriented guide to the development of the reader's own gasohol production capability. The gasohol commission favors small- scale gasohol production despite a much- disputed report by the state Department of Commerce and Economic Development that such operations are not yet economical. Gasohol, a blend of 90 percent unleaded gasoline and 10 percent ethanol, has been represented as an alternative to pure gasoline which can reduce the nation’s crude oil dependence. However, a systems analysis of the gasohol production processes indicates that gasohol is increasing rather than decrea.
