Alcohol From Tapioca Starch

Ethanol (Alcohol), especially one that is produced from cassava, is a good bio fuel. Besides, the cultivation of cassava (also known as tapioca) and its conversion to ethanol can be done in rural areas.

Every 1,000 tonnes of tapioca production creates 350 tonnes of by-product which in turn can produce 15,000 liters of ethanol.
