    The molasses stored in the ruptured Boston storage tank was destined to be fermented into industrial alcohol, also known as ethyl alcohol, or "ethanol." Today, the U.S. Energy Information Agency reports that the United States leads the world in the production of fuel ethanol, refining , barrels daily in . The holding tank belonged to The United States Industrial Alcohol Co. (USIA). The company used the tank to store the molasses it needed to make rum and industrial alcohol for munitions. In the aftermath of the tragedy, many lawsuits were filed against USIA.

The molasses employed as a source of alcohol must be carefully chosen; the lightest in color is the best, containing most uncrystallized sugar. The manufacture is extensively carried on in France, where the molasses from the beet sugar refineries is chiefly used on account of its low price, that obtained from the cane sugar factories being.

To meet the acing demands, production of Ethyl Alcohol or Ethanol through fermentation is gaining momentum and acclamation globally.

At industrial level, ethanol is prepared by molasses fermentation. A residue begotten from sugar cane processing, molasses. It sat between the harbor, where the molasses tankers docked, and railroad tracks so trains could carry the molasses to the United States Industrial Alcohol Company’s distillery in Cambridge.

From a human perspective, however, the North End of Boston was crowded with tenements and filled with immigrant families, many from small Italian towns.

Alcohol production: a traditional process changing rapidly T. PEARSE LYONS President, Alltech Inc., Nicholasville, Kentucky, USA In its simplest form, alcohol production is the process of preparing starch- or sugar-containing raw materials for fermentation by yeast, which is currently the only microorganism used for converting sugar into alcohol.

It was no accident then that United States Industrial Alcohol had a distillery near Boston and therefore decided to build a huge molasses storage tank near Boston harbor.

Stephen Puleo has done a masterful job in this book of telling the story of this storage tank; it's. The day a deadly wave of molasses tore through Boston molasses used in the production of industrial alcohol.

Puleo recounted in his book “Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses. This section is from the book "Alcohol, Its Production, Properties, Chemistry, And Industrial Applications", by Charles Simmonds.

Industrial grade sugars and molasses are used for the production of bioethanol. Today, alcohol technologies are well developed. Many extraction and purification techniques have enhanced ethanol production and the process is considered economically feasible.

What came to be known as the "Great Molasses Flood" killed 21 people and spilled two million gallons of molasses into the streets. Interestingly enough, molasses now costs about twice as much as refined sugar. Along with industrial alcohol and rum products, molasses can also be used to make yeast, cure tobacco, and in cattle feed.
