What do an ethanol consultant or an ethanol consultant do? Ethanol also called bioethanol, alcohol, ethyl alcohol, and drinking alcohol is simple alcohol produced by the fermentation of sugars with yeast, or by a petrochemical process. Ethanol is most commonly consumed as drinking alcohol, but it also has medical applications such as antiseptics or disinfectants. It is also used in many different kinds of manufacturing. In the renewable fuels industry, ethanol is mixed with gasoline to produce a cleaner-burning fuel source for gas-operated autos and machinery. The cost of ethanol has proven to be competitive and it is now widely used worldwide.
An ethanol consultant is someone who has a background in this area, both via his or her education and experience. Ethanol experts/consultants do a wide variety of things. They may assist investors in selecting the right ethanol equipment or help them with overseeing the building or retrofitting of an ethanol plant. They may assist ethanol plant owners in making the plant run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. They may assist obligated parties under RFS2 in buying quality ethanol or Renewable Identification Numbers (RINS). In matters involving ethanol-related litigation, the consultant may serve as an ethanol expert witnesses and assist the attorneys with understanding the ethanol issues in question, and may testify in court about the ethanol-related matters.
