Maize biofuel, conceptual image. Hand holding a fuel pump nozzle in front of a field of maize (Zea mays). Also known as corn, the ethanol produced from this crop is a biofuel that can be used as an alternative to gasoline and petroleum. It is produced from the maize through industrial fermentation, processing and distillation. Biofuels are clean and renewable sources of energy, which have less impact on the environment than fossil fuels such as diesel, petrol and coal.
