Abstract

With oil prices at an all-time high, alternative fuels are once again receiving considerable attention. One alternative, ethanol has been fueling Brazil since the 1980s and has recently become a cornerstone of United States energy policy as well. Our goal is to perform a thorough analysis and comparison of each country’s ethanol policy and make policy recommendations for the United States. Our research leads us to the conclusion that ethanol in the United States is not currently feasible on a large scale. However, new cellulosic ethanol technology may give ethanol a future.
