Glucose is transformed (fermented) into ethanol, carbon dioxide and water under anaerobic respiration conditions in yeast and many other organisms. In the process, ADP is converted into ATP.The ethanol can be distilled and purified (with difficulty, ethanol forms an azeotrope with water) into the pure chemical. Such "bio-ethanol" is considered to be "green" compared with ethanol from petrochemical sources.
