This project involves discovering simple methods of producing ethanol from a selected cassava root using acid hydrolysis, fermentation and distillation and the uses of ethanol to the industries and its environment. The insight for the change to biomass as a source of fuel is due to the fact that petroleum which has become indispensable to our country Nigeria is no longer sustainable. This research investigated the feasibility of using cassava roots for energy production and the promising results revealed that at least a selected cassava roots following all the necessary procedures and precautions would yield 65 percent of ethanol. Thus, harvesting cassava for food and as well as ethanol production is deemed feasible. However, this system would require supportive policies to ensure a balance between food security and fuel.   ...
