Bioethanol fuel pump. Womans hand on a Bioethanol E85 fuel pump. Bioethanol is a fuel derived from a variety of agricultural produce, including forest residue, sugar cane and grain. Bioethanol E85 contains a mixture of 85% bioethanol with 15% petrol. This reduction in the use of petrol greatly decreases the carbon dioxide emissions of vehicles. Also, the growth of crops for fuel removes carbon dioxide from the air through photosynthesis. This is beneficial because carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas whose release contributes to global warming.
