Ethanol (also known as Ethyl Alcohol) is a widely used commodity chemical with several applications, including use as a solvent and as a gasoline blendstock in the fuel market. Globally, the major portion of Ethanol production is based on the fermentation of sugars from crop feedstocks, such as sugarcane, corn, cellulosic material and others. Ethanol may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Ethanol or Green Ethanol. In view of current environmental issues, including greenhouse gas emissions, fermentation-based Ethanol is considered an alternative to fossil fuels since it originates from renewable resources.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Ethanol production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
