The rectified spirit is dehydrated to produce Absolute Ethanol( Fuel Ethanol) suitable for blending with Petrol and Diesel. We can make pharma, food as well as perfumery grade anhydrous alcohol.
A solvent is a liquid substance that is able to dissolve another, the solute. Alcohols are used as solvents, specially with hydrophobic materials, which are those that water can not dissolve, such as oils. Anhydrous alcohol is a potent solvent, widely used in the chemical industry to produce paints, varnishes and tinctures
We make 3 grades of anhydrous alcohol – Pharma, Food, and Perfumery grade.
