Biobutanol belongs to a family of biofuels, and is produced
by by the fermentation of biomass. The production of biobutanol can be done by
using existing ethanol production facilities. In fact, producing biobutanol in these facilities requires only minor modifications. The primary use of biobutanol is a
fuel in an internal combustion engine.
|Biobutanol has four atoms of carbon which result in bigger energy content as compared to ethanol that only has two.|
