Question: How does biomass ethanol work?
Answer: Ethanol that is produced from biomass works in the same way that any ethanol fuel works. Most often ethanol is combined with gasoline, to improve its performance in conventional engines, and then used as fuel for any machines that require engines. In this process the ethanol and gasoline mixture is combusted in a chamber where the energy of the expansion, that is a result of burning the fuel, is used to create mechanical energy that might move a car or even generate electricity.
