The research was carried out to produce ethanol from cassava peels. Cassava peels were collected and prepared by washing, mashing and fermenting. Distillation of the fermented liquid was carried out immediately after fermentation. 115% by volume was produced after distillation from 385g of ethanol sample at the temperature range of 60OC - 80OC. The sample was analyzed in order to compare the Physico-Chemical properties which were recorded as PH value 9.9, Specific Gravity 1.00, Density 1.042, Smoke Point 39.4OC, Flash Point 34.7OC, Percentage Yield 8.21%, Efficiency 50.1%, Refractive Index 1.340, Sugar Content 4.2 and viscosity 108cp. The result has shown that ethanol produced from cassava peel which is an agro- waste, was the best additive in term of yield and the sample is a composition of ethanol and water, reducing the sugar content....
