What is bio-ethanol?
Bio Ethanol is absolute alcohol also called Denatured Alcohol. Bio-ethanol – or simply ‘ethanol’ is a renewable energy source made by fermenting the sugar and starch components of plant by-products – mainly sugarcane and crops like grain, using yeast. It is also made from corn, potatoes, milk, rice, beetroot and recently grapes, banana and dates depending on the countries agricultural strength. Bio Ethanol is completely composed of biological products resulting in a neutral ecological balance. The combustion of Bio Ethanol results in completely clean emissions: Heat, Steam and Carbon Dioxide.
