Bioethanol

We can supply bioethanol with Different Packing and Size and High Quality for Different Industries.

Ethanol is a flammable colorless liquid. When used as an alternative fuel, ethanol is referred to simply as Bioethanol. Bioethanol is a renewable, alternative fuel traditionally produced by the yeast fermentation of sugar.Bioethanol is frequently used as motor fuel or as an additive in gasoline and is an option for more "renewable" energy.Bioethanol is considered one of the most promising substitutes for fossil fuels.

Uses for Bioethanol :-

1- Besides alcoholic beverage production, ethanol is also used as an alternative fuel to gasoline for internal combustion engines. It can be mixed with gasoline to any percentage, and all existing gasoline engines on automobiles can operate with blends of up to 10% ethanol with gasoline.However, ethanol has a lower energy density than that of gasoline, meaning more ethanol - in terms of volume and mass - needs to be combusted to produce the same amount of energy. In fact, energy per unit volume of ethanol is 34% lower than that of gasoline,therefore 1.5 gallons of ethanol contains approximately
the same amount of energy as one gallon of gasoline does.

2- An additional advantage of ethanol is that it has a higher octane rating than gasoline, allowing engine designs with higher compression ratios, meaning ethanol driven engines can be designed to have higher thermal efficiency. Although the energy contained per gallon of ethanol is less than gasoline, as the energy within the fuels is converted to the mechanical movements of the vehicle, the ethanol engine will waste less energy as compared to that of gasoline. An ethanol-only engine can be designed for better theoretical power output and higher thermal efficiency, meaning an ethanol powered car will have better performance and waste less energy. Also, if bioethanol is used, the carbon dioxide released when ethanol is burned is balanced by  the carbon dioxide captured when the crops are grown to make ethanol. This differs from petroleum, which is made from plants that grew millions of years ago. On a life cycle analysis basis, corn-based bioethanol production and use reduces greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by up to 52% compared to gasoline production and use. Bioethanol use could reduce GHGs by as much as 86%.

3- Ethanol can be used as a feedstock in the chemicals industry

4- Ethanol can be used as a transport fuel to replace gasoline

4- Ethanol can be used as a fuel for power generation by thermal combustion

Advantage :-​

1-Exhaust gases of ethanol are much cleaner, it burns more cleanly (more complete combustion)

2-Positive energy balance – Depending to the type of raw stock it can vary from 1.24 to 8. The output of energy during the production is more than the input. (controversial)

3-It is carbon neutral i.e. the carbon dioxide released in the bioethanol production process is the same amount as the one the crops previously absorbed during photosynthes

4-Ethanol-blended fuel as E10 (10% ethanol and 90% gasoline) reduces greenhouse gases by up to 3.9%.

5-The net effect of ethanol use results in an overall decrease in ozone formation, an important environmental issue.

6-Ethanol is considered a renewable energy resource because it is primarily the result of conversion of the sun's energy into usable energy. Creation of ethanol starts with photosynthesis, which causes feedstocks,

7-It reduces greenhouse gases.

8-It reduces the amount of high-octane additives.

9-The fuel spills are more easily biodegraded or diluted to non toxic concentrations.

Industry Served

Bioethanol is used in a wide range of industrial applications, in the pharmaceutical sector, the chemical industry, and as a fuel. Bioethanol is by far the most commonly used biofuel world-wide and is used alongside conventional petrol to fuel petrol engines in road vehicles.

  • Alcoholic beverages: Spirits and alcohols (e.g. vodka & gin). Neutral alcohol is mixed with water, aromas and flavourings to produce the final product.

  • Food and non-alcoholic beverages: Flavours and aromas. Ethanol is used as a natural product to extract and concentrate flavours and aromas, which are then used by the food & drink industry. No alcohol is contained in the final products.

  • Chemicals: Paints and thermometers. It is widely used as a solvent, and you can find it in many household products, such as the de-icer or anti-freeze you use to clear your car windscreen. Increasingly ethanol is used as a renewable alternative to fossil-based chemicals for creating a large range of products, such as bioplastics.

  • Cosmetics: It is contained in perfumes, deodorants, and other cosmetics.

  • Pharmaceutical: Ethanol also has many medical uses, and can be found in products such as medicines, medical wipes and as an antiseptic in most antibacterial hand sanitiser gels.
