Different raw materials are used for fuel ethanol production. Most common are corn and sugar cane followed by cassava, sorghum, wheat and rye. The production of fuel ethanol from cellulosic feedstock has started commercialization and will gain more and more importance in the future.

We design and deliver complete process lines for the production of fuel alcohol including all major steps:

  • Raw material milling & mashing
  • Fermentation
  • Distillation and Ethanol drying
  • Solubles concentration by evaporation
  • DDGS ( Distillers dried grains and solubles ) drying 

With our references in the drinking and power alcohol market we can show outstanding experience using raw materials from different origin. Our widespread knowledge from the realization of numerous projects enables us to react in an optimum way to our client’s requirements to assure the maximum benefit regarding plant efficiency and investment volume.

Outstanding performance and reliability 

GEA is known for systems with optimized energy efficiency and maximum production yield. Our heat integrated processes make use of sophisticated concepts such as mechanical vapor recompression, multi stage distillation and evaporation, heat optimized mashing systems and so forth.
