Bioethanol

Bioethanol is obtained on an industrial scale from carbohydrate fermentation, after enzyme hydrolysis and a distillation process which eliminates volatile impurities generated during the process, followed by another dehydration process which helps eliminate excess water from distillation. Under these conditions, bioethanol is directly blended with gasoline in a proportion of up to 85 % (e85), being a renewable substitute for gasoline.

Agrinavitas will obtain bioethanol from cassava, sweet sorghum and molasses fermentation collected after grinding and subsequent distillation.

Its main advantages compared to fossil fuels are as follows:

  • Renewable origin.
  • Biodegradable.
  • Greater independence from oil imports; its use contributes to increasing autonomy and energy diversification.
  • Cleaner fuel in polluting emissions such as sulfur oxide and particles.
  • Contributes to growth of local economies and income redistribution, creating jobs in rural areas.
  • Reduction of GHG emissions which overheat the earth’s surface and accelerate climate change.
  • Easy to obtain and store.

The bioethanol supplied by Agrinavitas to its clients will  meet the strict sustainability standards required under applicable laws
