FAQ's About Bioethanol Liquid Fuel

  • What is bioethanol

    Bioethanol is a plant based, bio renewable alcohol. It is produced from the fermentation of sugars or molasses, originating from agricultural crops such as sugarcane, sugar beet, potatoes and wheat. The bioethanol used in EkoFuel is sustainably produced from the fermentation of molasses, which is a waste product from the production of sugar from sugar beet.

    After distillation, the ethanol is double rectified to produce a 96.6% high purity bioethanol.

    EU regulations do not allow pure ethanol to be sold for purposes other than human consumption. For this reason, EkoFuel is denatured according to commission regulations (EC) No 3199/93 and is not intended for human consumption.
