The Renewable Fuels instructional materials were created for educators to use with students to develop a solid foundational understanding of renewable fuels. The six units of curriculum include information ranging from definitions of ethanol and processes within the ethanol industry to the exploration of career opportunities in renewable fuels. The student module courses explain what ethanol is, the production process, and the effects ethanol has both on the agricultural industry and environment as well as the impact of the ethanol industry on our culture and economy.
