1 Dominic Deichert

2  Ford Model T designed to use pure ethanol  Today, a fuel additive to decrease gaseous emissions  An AKI octane number of to commercial gasoline average is 87  A functional unit of 1.5 gallons ethanol to 1 gallon gasoline

3  Can be grown annually in most regions  Current production is 1,243,000 acres giving 22.2 tons/acre beets (27,537,000 tons beets)  Studies of French sugar beet ethanol suggests 750 gallons ethanol per acre gallons per acre of sugar cane in Brazil.  One downside: Cost is 2-3 times as much for sugar beet ethanol compared to sugar cane

6  Sugar Beets: gallons/acre  Need 1.51x current production for 1%  Losses due to fertilizer, pesticide, and machine use: 18.2%  Corn: gallons/acre  Need 3.6% current production for 1%  Losses due to fertilizer, pesticide, and machine use: 32.2%

9  Processing  Sugar Beet Losses: 32.9%  Corn Losses: 58.1%  Overall Losses  Sugar Beet: 51.1%  Corn: 90.4%

10  Ethanol is a tested immediate solution to cut emissions  Sugar beets have highest productivity of ethanol per acre and are suited for the U.S.  Both processes are the same with an additional step to break up starch into sugar  Sugar beets are better than corn from an energy standpoint
