Solution

Fermentation:

  1. Fermentation is the metabolic process through which a microorganism transforms a carbohydrate such as starch or sugar into an alcohol or acid.
  2. Yeast, for example, ferments sugar into alcohol to obtain energy.
  3. Ethanol fermentation is a process in which pyruvate (a byproduct of glucose metabolism) is broken down into ethanol and carbon dioxide by yeast and bacteria. C6H12O6(aq)Glucose2C2H5OH(l)Ethanol+2CO2(g)Carbondioxide
  4. Many more alcohols can be generated in this way, but synthetic ways are more likely used.

Therefore, alcohol is produced with the help of fermentation.
