The biological process of producing bioethanol from either by-products or renewable feedstock makes bioethanol a very green and enviromentally friendly alternative to the petroleum oil, coal and gas based products on the Australian market.
Bioethanol Fireplace Fuel is made from renewable biological by-products from sugar production. Molasses is fermented with water and yeast to product bioethanol. After fermentation has finished, all solids and water are removed by distillation resulting in pure ethanol. The solid matter left after fermenting can be used as stock food or fertiliser and the water can be recycled or used on crops for irrigation. A large poercentage of bioethanol produced in Australia is made from molasses.
Bioethanol is one of most common biofuels currently available on the market, biodiesel being the other.
