Can you burn something that does not contain carbon dioxide?

    Burned carbon containing materials don’t always contain carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is produced when something containing carbon, in any form, is burned. This happens through a reaction with oxygen and the carbon based structures in the material. Most things release at least some carbon dioxide when burned because everything living on earth is a carbon-based lifeform, however, there are things that release less carbon dioxide than others. This is how we classify clean burning biofuels. For example, ethanol, a considerably cleaner fuel than gasoline, still releases CO2 when burned, but less than conventional fuels.
