Ethanol Production Cost Analysis 2020

Ethanol is a flammable colourless liquid. It is used as an alternative fuel and is commonly used as motor fuel or as an additive in gasoline and is in fact considered as an option for more "renewable" energy. As mentioned above, apart from being used in the production of alcoholic beverages, ethanol is also used as an alternative fuel to gasoline for internal combustion engines. All existing gasoline engines on automobiles can operate with blends of up to 10% ethanol with gasoline.

When derived from biomass, ethanol is known as bioethanol.  Bioethanol is quite similar (chemically) to petroleum derived ethanol. Usual feedstocks of bioethanol involve corn, switchgrass, sugar cane, algae, or other biomass. The feedstocks go through the process of fermentation, during which certain species of yeast digest the sugar contained in the feedstock. The process releases bioethanol and carbon dioxide. Bioethanol use could diminish greenhouse gases by as much as 86%.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Ethanol production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
