Sustainability in bioethanol production
Bioethanol (not to be confused with biodiesel) burns largely CO2-neutral, as the plants absorb as much CO2 in their growth as their energetic utilization releases. In addition, bioethanol burns without soot and is sulfur-free.
The environment also benefits: Analyzes show that AGRANA bioethanol meets the EU's demand for reducing 50% greenhouse gas emissions over gasoline over its entire life cycle.
The process of considering the entire life cycle for bioethanol incorporates five key steps:
