Overview

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.

Applications

Most microorganisms, such as harmful bacteria, die in the presence of an alcohol, which can coagulates the proteins in their surface, producing a crust around it. Anhydrous alcohol is used in the production of antiseptic substances, widely used to sterilize surfaces and equipment in biochemical laboratories. However, it is never used pure, as the disinfectant properties of ethanol is optimum at concentrations of 60 to 90 percent.
