What are some dangerous byproducts of the production of ethanol?

    Ethanol production produces distilled grain. This isn’t dangerous, and it can be fed to livestock. In fact, distilled grain is better for livestock than undistilled grain and actually makes them fart less! This reduces the emission of methane, a greenhouse gas, into our atmosphere. Burning ethanol does result in the release of 30% more carbon dioxide (CO2) than burning gasoline. However, if ethanol replaces gasoline as fuel, we should see an overal reduction in greenhouse gas emissions because gasoline releases a whole bunch of other greenhouse gases, in addition to CO2.
