  • It is the same ethanol found in ethanolic beverages, but ethanol also makes an effective motor fuel.
  • Ethanol is made by fermenting almost any material thatcontains starch or sugar. Grains such as cornand sorghum are good sources; but potatoes,sugar cane, Jerusalem artichokes, and other farmplants and plant wastes are also suitable.Ethanol is made from grains (mainly corn) orother renewable agricultural or forestry productssuch as wood, brewery waste, potatoes, cheesewhey, paper waste, beets, or vegetable waste.
  • Ethanol remains the only domestic renewable fuel thatis meaningfully reducing America’s dependence onforeign oil.

    2. 2. WHAT IS ETHANOL?
    3. 3. The Fermentation of sugar crops (sugarcane, wheat, sorghum, maize, etc), starch, cornstalks, vegetable leftover and fruits after distillation is known as ETHANOL
    4. 4. USE
    5. 5. Best known as the type of ethanol found in ethanolic beverages
    6. 6. Used in thermometers as a solvent
    7. 7. Used as a raw material in various industrial processes
    8. 8. also be used as a FUEL
    10. 10. Ethanol is used as an automotive fuel by itself and can be mixed with gasoline to form what has been called "GASOHOL" or FUEL ETHANOL.
    11. 11. How is ethanol being used as transportation fuel ?
    12. 12. Most ethanol used for fuel is being blended into gasoline at concentrations of 5 to 10 percent. All petrol engines can utilize the blended ethanol and needs no alterations.
    13. 13. There is a small but growing market for E85 fuel (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline) for use in Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFVs), several million of which have been produced by U.S. automakers.
    14. 14. Ethanol is also being used to formulate a blend with diesel fuel, known as "E-Diesel", and as a replacement for leaded aviation gasoline in small aircraft.

    21. 21. HOW IS IT PRODUCED ?
    22. 22.  By grains such as corn and sorghum  Potatoes, sugar cane, and other farm plants and plant wastes.  Forestry products such as wood, brewery waste, whey, paper waste, beets, or vegetable waste.
    23. 23. Ethanol is a product of fermentation In fermentation, ethanol retains much of the energy that was originally in the sugar, which explains why ethanol is an excellent fuel.
    24. 24. ETHANOL FROM CELLULOSE Cellulose—an organic compound that is the structural component of cell walls for plants. Cellulosic materials, such as wood chips and corn stalks, are an emerging feedstock for ethanol production. Cellulosic ethanol promises to reduce GHG emissions by up to 110% compared to gasoline.

    44. 44. Conclusion The ethanol industry continues to make a significant contribution to the economy in terms of job creation, generation of tax revenue, and displacement of imported crude oil. The importance of the ethanol industry to agriculture and rural economies is particularly notable. Continued growth and expansion of the ethanol industry through new technologies and feedstock will enhance the industry’s position as the original creator of green jobs, and will enable America to make further strides toward independence from imported fossil fuels.
    45. 45. BRAZIL Pure ethanol (100% ethanol) is used in approximately 40 percent of the cars in Brazil. The remaining vehicles use blends of 24 percent ethanol with 76 percent gasoline. Brazil consumes nearly 4 billion gallons of ethanol annually. In addition to consumption, Brazil also exports ethanol to other countries. SWEDEN Sweden has used ethanol in chemical production for many years. As a result, Sweden’s crude oil consumption has been cut in half since 1980. During the same time period, the use of gasoline and diesel for transportation has also increased
    46. 46. ETHANOL IN INDIA
    47. 47. India is initiating the use of ethanol as an automotive fuel. A move has been made by distilleries in India to use surplus ethanol as a blending agent or an oxygenate in gasoline.
    48. 48. Currently, the mandate is for 5 percent blending but if we go to 10 percent, one could save about Rs 8,000-9,000 crore of foreign exchange which is currently being used to import crude. Source:
    49. 49. ACTUAL SCENE
    50. 50. Ethanol blending with petrol yet to gather steam Some seven years have passed since the government launched the program to blend 5 per cent ethanol with petrol. However, the desired blending has not yet been achieved because of problems over pricing and procurement.
    51. 51. Blending at the rate of 5 per cent will require 1,050 million liters ethanol annually. But the OMCs (Indian Oil, Bharat Petroleum and Hindustan Petroleum) have procured only 400 million liters since January 2013. Source: Business Today
    52. 52. Blending in states like Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Delhi and Karnataka has been taking place at 10 per cent. But in several other states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat only 5 per cent has been achieved. At the national level, only 2 to 2.5 per cent blending is happening against a target of 5 per cent. Source: Business Today
    53. 53. In the absence of a well knit policy in the past for purchasing and blending ethanol, not many distilleries have been producing ethanol. Only three distilleries attached to sugar mills had war years’ experience, and were able to gear themselves up to supply ethanol immediately.
    54. 54. The requirement of ethanol at 5 per cent blending is expected to rise from 465 million liters to 682 million liters. Source:
    55. 55. 11 units in Uttar Pradesh -75 million liters 7 units in Tamil Nadu -62.5 million liters 8 units in Karnataka- 66.5 million liters 4 units in Andhra Pradesh-over 40 million Similar steps have also be taken up by the cooperative sector units in Maharashtra, Punjab and UP. By the end of the year it is estimated that about 300 million liters capacity would have been created for the production of anhydrous ethanol. Source:
    56. 56. If additional cane available is utilized, the production of ethanol would be around 1,485 million liters. Source:
    57. 57. The country imports 80% of its fuel but is mandated to blend 20% ethanol by 2017. Source:
    58. 58. February 17, 2014 Indian oil companies buy record 720 million liters of ethanol from mills In India, the country’s oil marketing companies have at last finalized a record ethanol purchase of 720 million liters of ethanol from sugar mills, making this the first year the country will reach its E5 blending target. The ethanol will reduce the country’s $20 billion annual fuel import bill by $1 billion. The OMCs paid between 56 and 60 cents per liter. About 230 million liters have already been picked up.

    59. 59. February 24, 2014 Indian edible oils company plans to set up corn-based ethanol In India, Rasoya Proteins plans to invest $81 million in setting up additional soy oil production as well as a corn-based ethanol plant. The company believes that increased demand for ethanol for blending will provide a market to support the new investment. Source: RECENT HEADLINES
    60. 60. ON APRIL 7,2014 In India, the Inter-Ministerial Group has agreed to change the formula used to calculate the price sugar mills get for their ethanol, meaning that they will receive between 1 and 5 rupees per liter more during the next tender to supply from the crush starting in October. Mills have been holding back from participating in the tenders because it wasn’t financially viable at the prices the oil marketing companies were offering. Source: RECENT HEADLINES
    61. 61. Ethanol is part of our nation’s solution to reducing our dependency on imported oil, creating domestic jobs, cleaning our environment by reducing dangerous emissions caused by burning gasoline, and helping to improve engine performance by adding much needed octane.
    63. 63. Unlike biodiesel, there is no need to have a corporation. Ethanol can be made even in your backyard. Those who want to save the environment are busy in producing ethanol in their backyards; guidelines of the procedure are easily available.
