Anhydrous ethanol, also known in the industry as pure or absolute ethanol, is mixed with gasoline to improve its octane rating and reduce pollutant emissions. The mixture is made in different proportions according to the legislation of each country to increase the gasoline’s capacity to resist the explosion and enhance its performance.
We trade anhydrous and hydrous ethanol derived out in different ways, with different raw materials mainly sugarcane and maize.
The difference between anhydrous ethanol and hydrous ethanol is the amount of water in its composition. Anhydrous ethanol is practically pure, with at least 99.6% of alcohol content.
