Ethanol (also known as ethanol gas or ethanol fuel) is a renewable fuel made of plant material that is added to gasoline to oxygenate it, reducing air pollution. Most of the gasoline now sold in the United States is blended with some amount of fuel ethanol. These blends are named by their ethanol content. For example, a blend of 10% fuel ethanol and 90% gasoline (by volume) is known as E10 gasoline. In 2019, about 14.5 billion gallons of ethanol fuel were consumed in the United States, mostly in mixtures of E10 gasoline or less. Any gasoline-powered engine in the United States can use E10, but only specific types of vehicles can use mixtures containing more than 10% ethanol.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms like Lee Enterprises Consulting will certainly have experts in ethanol fuel and offer a wide range of services in the general areas of biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, feedstocks, and hemp/cannabis, and will have many specialized business and financial services like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants and loans and bio market research. A big consulting group like this should also offer technical and engineering related services like techno economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis and expert witness engagements, and have solid strategic partnerships in place to assist clients with insurance, legal, accounting, plant fabrication, feedstock procurement.
