CREMER Bioethanol

Ethanol is the trivial name and the common term for Ethyl Alcohol. It is derived from natural feedstocks like sugar cane. Ethanol is a saturated straight chain alcohol which is produced by fermentation & distillation. Physically, Ethanol is a water-soluble, clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic smell and a low boiling point.

Whether used in fuel, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs or in technical applications, Ethanol is a very useful and versatile raw material.

Recovery and Origin

There are two different types of Ethanol – Bio and Synthetic Ethanol. Nowadays, the synthetic production process is less used. Vegetable raw materials such as sugars, grains and celluloses are the basis for the production of Bio Ethanol.

Today, Bioethanol is produced in four stages. 

  • Milling of feedstocks
  • Fermentation of the mass
  • Distillation
  • Adsorbation / Dehydration 

Five stages are used if the biomass is coming from grains or cellulosic materials (enzymatic process between the milling of feedstock and fermentation of the same is necessary).

Uses

Cosmetics

As it is harmless for health and environment, skin-friendly and odorless, Ethanol is used as a carrier and natural solvent in cosmetics, personal care products and household products.

In creams, Ethanol is used as an evaporation agent of various filler ingredients. As Ethanol is also odorless, it is a good base for adding perfume and is used as a substance carrier in personal and hair care products.

Foodstuffs

There is also broad scope for the use of Ethanol in foodstuffs and beverages: as flavor enhancer, vineager production and as base for various drinks and confectionary.

Pharmaceuticals

Ethanol is one of the most often used ingredients in drugs. It acts as a solvent and as a chemical reactant.

Other well-known uses include, cough medicines, capsules it is also used because of its sedative, carminative, cooling, antipyretic, rubefacient, cleansing, and antiseptic properties.

Biofuels

As it is harmless for health and environment, skin-friendly and odorless, Ethanol is used as a carrier and natural solvent in cosmetics, personal care products and household products.

In creams, Ethanol is used as an evaporation agent of various filler ingredients. As Ethanol is also odorless, it is a good base for adding perfume and is used as a substance carrier in personal and hair care products.



Technical Uses

In the technical field, Ethanol is used to manufacture antifreeze agents, among other things.

Ethanol is also needed in numerous reactions in the production of various chemicals.

Ethanol is also typically used in the production of paints, inks, varnishes and alkyd resins, used as heat bearer, aerosols and also used in the off shore industries to name of a few application areas.

The technical use of Ethanol has a wide field of numerous applications.
