Encyclopedia > Methyl isobutyl ketone

A pollutant that the government wants added to ethanol alcohol to prevent it from being used as a beverage, but only as a vehicle fuel instead. In the event of ground water contamination, as in the case of MTBE added to gasoline by government order, the State and Federal governments reject all responsibility for the future ground water contamination by Methyl isobutyl ketone and insist that it is the fault of ethanol fuel corporations. Even though these corporations do not want to add Methyl isobutyl ketone to ethanol fuel, but are being forced by the State and Federal government on threat of fine or jail time. The tv news media says they will not inform the American people of these criminal actions by the State and Federal government politicians and government employees.
