Author(s): Baer, Zachary Cardwell | Advisor(s): Clark, Douglas S; Blanch, Harvey W | Abstract: The batch fermentation of simple sugars to ethanol has thus far been the most successful process to displace transportation fuel consumption worldwide. However, the physical properities of ethanol limit its application in most of the world beyond 10-15 vol% blends with conventional gasoline. Additionally, ethanol is too volatile to be blended at an appreciable level with jet and diesel fuels… Expand
