Ethanol Racer

 

The Ethanol Racer simulation is designed to educate consumers on where ethanol comes from, why it’s used as a fuel additive, and how it’s save for vehicle use. A prototype of the game is being demoed at a number of county fairs over the 2014 summer and has generated tremendous interest with younger generations and we hope to capitalize on that opportunity to provide rich content and learning experiences as we develop the system further.
