    Dear friends from Malaysia. I am very interested in your success to make ethanol from banana. May I have your email to contact and discuss about ethanol from banana? I and my friends in Indonesia want to develop ethanol from banana because banana is very abundant in Indonesia but now we get energy crisis so the alternatif energy from banana will relief us from the crisis.

    I have a plantation of banana, I have beeen doind test on bananas, I added Urea as a fermentation agent, I so far I have been able to obtain 300 ml from a single banana. Also the energy use for the fermentation have been the sun. I placed the banana in a glass clear container add 1 tbs of Urea and leave it for 12 hours under the sun with a close containes.

    I would appreciate any experiences that I can be told about.
