Transcript of Copy of Ethanol

What is ethanol?
Ethanol is an alcohol
It is an intoxicating agent
It's chemical formula is C2H5OH
The alcohol made from this fermentation is ethanol and it is the alcohol used in alcoholic beverages.
Step 1
Carbohydrate is "mashed" with hot water to release starch.
Liquid heated to 55°C .
Treated with malt (catalyst)
Enzyme diastase converts starch into maltose
Step 2
The temperature is dropped to about 35°C.

Yeast is added.

Yeast contains the enzyme maltase which breaks up maltose into glucose & fructose.
Step 3
Another enzyme from the yeast, zymase, then converts glucose into ethanol and carbon dioxide.
Fermented mixture now contains ethanol, water and other organic compounds
Ethanol concentration is approximately 5-15%
At this concentration, the yeast is killed
To obtain the pure ethanol and at greater concentrations of ethanol fractional distillation is used.
There are two major industrial methods in manufacturing ethanol.
Catalytic hydration of ethene
Ethene and steam are passed over a phosphoric acid catalyst
300 C & 60 atm
Used mainly in the industry as a solvent and manufacture of pharmaceutical products
It is impossible to remove all of the water from the mixture and the maximum purity obtained is approximately 95% ethanol and 5%water.
Ethanol (b.p. 78.3 C) and water(100 C) form an azeotropic mixture with a min. boiling point (78.15 C).
In distillation, the most volatile liquid distills off first. In this case, it is the azeotropic mixture that is most volatile, thus no higher conc. can be obtained.
The end product is bioethanol.
Gasoline additive for motor vehicles.
Octane enhancer since octane rating is higher than average gasoline.
Burns more cleanly because it contains oxygen (more complete combustion)
Ethanol is often called ‘drinking alcohol’ or ‘pure alcohol’ as it is the prime ingredient in alcoholic beverages.
Ethanol is the intoxicating substance in alcohol.
Ethanol is low in toxicity and soluble in non-polar substances
It is used as a solvent in:
medical drugs (Laudanum)
permanent markers

Ethanol is used in antiseptic and some antibacterial soaps and wipes.
Ethanol is effective against viruses, fungi and most bacteria
But is ineffective against bacterial spores.
ฤAlcohol industry culminate in country
Provides employment opportunities and stable incomes
Significant source of public revenue to governments
the reduced dependence on imported oil
Since fermentation is one of the methods of making ethanol, opportunities are offered to source local agricultural products thereby benefiting rural farming communities
Why Choose Fermentation Ethanol Process ?
Waste discarded into streams and rivers
Increased carbon dioxide pollution
By-products can be used as animal feed
Carbon dioxide can be collected and used for carbonating beer

Thank you for your attention
Why it must be ethanol
Reducing dependence on petroleum fuels by distributing the fuel source.
Using a clean fuel that is environmentally friendly, reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, and other toxins in the fuel
Currently, ethanol is mainly produced from the fermentation ethanol process. Ethanol derived from chemical synthesis has a very small amount about 5 percent of the amount of ethanol produced in the world
Synthetic ethanol produced from coal and ethylene, a raw material is non-renewable energy but Fermentation ethanol produced from various plants, such as plants with sugar, cassava, molasses, seeds, grains, etc.. which is renewable energy.
