Bioethanol is ethanol (ethyl alcohol) that is made from agricultural feedstocks such as sugarcane or corn. In 2010, the United States produced 13,230 million gallons of ethanol (using corn as a feedstock).[1] The same year, Brazil, the world's second largest ethanol producer, produced 6,921.54 million gallons of ethanol from sugarcane. Together, the U.S. and Brazil make up about 88 percent of global bioethanol production.
