Bioethanol is a dehydrated ethanol, which is used as a motor fuel for automobiles. Unlike gasoline, bioethanol is produced from renewable agricultural products and its waste and is a popular source of energy in Brazil, India, USA, Europe and China. In Europe, bioethanol is produced mainly from starch containing raw material (wheat and corn) and from molasses (sugar production waste). However, the solution of food problems in the world gradually leads to the fact that the starchy raw material used for ethanol production is more commonly used for food. Corn and wheat are used less frequently over time for the production of bioethanol, increasingly using cheaper and more productive raw material – sweet sorghum. Sweet sorghum (Sorghum saccuratum) is a valuable universal crop: its juice is used for bioethanol production; crop residues are used to produce electricity and process steam as well as fodder.
