Ethanol is a renewable fuel derived mainly from sugar or starch crops. In recent years, however, some ethanol production plants have begun to use biomass (cellulosic fibres). Alfa Laval supplies innovative technologies for every phase of grain-based processing, sugar-based processing as well as ethanol production based on cellulosic raw fibre. Used as a renewable pure fuel or gasoline additive, ethanol increases octane and reduces emissions.
