The Feasibility of Crabgrass as Ethanol Presented by: Mark Dominic A. Fonacier Jericho A. Garcia Alyssa D. Liwanag Pamela Grace G. Puebla
Abstract This project entitled Feasibility of Crabgrass (Digitaria Ischaemum) as Ethanol aims to find out if the starch extracted from the crabgrass can be used in the production of ethanol.
Background of the Study This proposal is about extracting Ethanol out of Crabgrass. We have researched that ethanol can be taken from plants containing starch. Since every plant produces starch, we thought that maybe, Crabgrass would serve as a feasible source of ethanol.
General Objectives of the Study To determine whether Crabgrass is a viable source of Ethanol.
Specific Objectives To compare the amount of ethanol per unit mass of Crabgrass to other well-known sources of ethanol such as corn plants.
Significance of the Problem This study would help make ethanol production less controversial since now it would allow for the production of ethanol without greatly affecting overall food production.
Scopes and Limitations The study is only limited to the use of the Crabgrass plant as a source of ethanol, it will not go in depth into other possible uses for Crabgrass.
METHODOLOGY Sun Drying of Crabgrass Milling Gathering of Materials
