What is Bio Ethanol? Bio Ethanol (bioethanol, ethanol, alcohol) are all used to describe the chemical ethyl alcohol with the formula C2H6O. Ethanol, as it is most commonly known, can be produced by fermentation of sugars (most commonly glucose with the formula C6H12O) by yeast yielding a ratio of approximately 51% ethanol and 49% carbon dioxide (CO2) by weight. However, ethanol can also be produced from petroleum through a series of chemical reactions to give the exact same chemical. Bio Ethanol, as it says, is produced only by fermentation.
The best renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms have experts in a wide variety of bioeconomy specialties, including ethanol fuel. They should also have experts in renewable fuels, renewable chemicals, feedstocks, bio technologies, bioproducts, and all areas of sustainability, synthetic biology, emerging technologies, and waste management. They should be able to provide clients with expertise for projects, and be available as expert witnesses in matters within the bioeconomy.
Ethanol (ethyl alcohol) has been used as a fuel for decades. Bio ethanol refers to ethanol that is produced by the fermentation of sugars by yeast to ethanol. Most commonly today #2 dent corn and milo (grain sorghum) are used to provide the starch that is converted to sugars for the fermentation process. Fermentation is the most common way to produce ethanol. Is there ethanol that is not bio ethanol? Yes. Ethanol can be made from petroleum after it is cracked to produce ethylene. The ethylene can then be converted by chemical reactions to ethanol. Conversely, ethanol can be converted to ethylene through chemical reactions.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms like Lee Enterprises Consulting normally offer a wide range of services in biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, feedstocks, and hemp/cannabis. These companies should have business and financial services like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants and loans and bio market research. The company also offers technical and engineering related services like techno economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis and expert witness engagements. They might also have strategic partnerships in place to assist clients with insurance, legal, accounting, plant fabrication, feedstock procurement.
