Ethanol is nothing but alcohol. The production process is similar to making other alcohol (brewing). You use the sugar from the sugarcane to feed oxygen starved yeast which is added to a pulvarized mixture of water and sugarcane. The yeast feeds on the sugar and gives off alcohol and carbon dioxide (fermenting). The alcohol evaporates and is collected and filtered. "Ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol or grain alcohol, is a flammable, tasteless, colorless, mildly toxic chemical compound with a distinctive odor, one of the alcohols that is most often found in alcoholic beverages. In common usage, it is often referred to simply as alcohol."
