In the industry, ethanol is generally produced by a starch fermentation process or an ethylene direct hydration process. Fermentation ethanol was developed on the basis of winemaking and was the only industrial method for producing ethanol for a long period of time. The raw materials of the fermentation method mainly include cereal raw materials (wheat, corn, sorghum, rice, millet, oats, etc.), potato raw materials (cassava, sweet potato, potato, etc.), and sugar raw materials (beet, sugar cane, waste molasses, sisal, etc.) And cellulose raw materials (wood chips, straw, etc.).

A.      Cereal raw material


B.       Potato raw materials



C.      Glycogen raw materials


D.      Cellulose raw materials


E.       Synthesis method

The direct hydration of ethylene is the direct reaction of ethylene with water in the presence of heat, pressure and in the presence of a catalyst to produce ethanol:

CH2═CH2 + H-OH→C2H5OH (The reaction is carried out in two steps. The first step is to form an organic mercury compound in a water-tetrahydrofuran solution with a mercury salt such as mercury acetate, and then reduce it with sodium borohydride.) - Ethylene can be taken from petroleum cracking gas in large quantities, with low cost and large output, which can save a lot of food, so it develops very quickly. It can also be converted into syngas by coal chemical industry, directly synthesized or made by industrial hydrogenation of acetic acid.



The alcohol machinery and parts are packed and labeled according to the regulations of exporting and it can be packed as per customer's requests. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation. In addition, clear labels are tagged on the outside of the packages for easy identification of the product I. D. and quality information.
