Biofuel

Bioethanol pilot plant

The purpose of the process plant is to obtain ethanol (bioethanol) through the fermentation of raw materials of agricultural origin such as beet, cereals and other sources of sugar such as Jerusalem artichoke or chicory and purifying them until an adequate quality is obtained for its future dehydration with the purpose of being used as automotive fuel.

The nature of the project is part of the research activity focused on these agricultural raw materials and the optimisation of the parameters of the bioethanol production process.

The plant was designed with a minimum production capacity of 500 l / day of ethanol, obtaining in turn as by-products the separation sludge from the stillage by centrifugal decantation and a syrup resulting from the evaporation of said stillage, which are recoverable compounds when used as animal feed.

Starting from the knowledge of the fermentation processes in yeast plants and the bioethanol production technology, our own in-house technology has been developed in plant concepts with a view to obtaining the expected results is undoubtedly a major satisfaction for the entire project team.
