The development of vehicles powered by ethanol included the biofuel definitively in the Brazilian energy matrix, ensuring its demand.

- ... n-Butanol is a chemical widely used in industry, with an approximate annual output of 4 million tons and a market valued at USD 8.6 billion. It was first produced by ABE fermentation (acetone - n-butanol - ethanol) at the beginning of the twentieth century using molasses as a substrate, an expensive raw material that made the process economically unfeasible. In this work, we developed a second-gen ...
