Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be blended with Gasoline and Motor Spirit to enhance Octan and Oxygen value, which reduces air pollution and improves the automobile performances. Simply we call it Absolute Alcohol (unhydrous alcohol) having purity of more than 99.6%.

It can be used as a renewable source of energy to increase the fuel supply & reduce our dependency on imports of crude oil. It has increased the nation’s ability to control its own security and economic features. It reduces gas emissions toxins like CO2 and CO (Carbon Monoxide,) which are a major contributor to global warming. The plant cultivated for ethanol productions absorbs CO2 from atmosphere.

Ethanol can be blended with Motor Spirit up to 22%. It is also used as a substitute for Petroleum Solvents. Ethanol is mainly used in Pharma, Chemicals, Drug, Fabric, Plastic, Polymer Industries.

India consumes around 7.0 Million metric ton petrol in a year. Present installed distillery capacity in the country is 3100 Million liters per year. 55% of present production is for IMFL whereas rest 45% goes for pharmaceutical and industrial application.
