Ethanol (Absolute Alcohol) :

The Ethanol, being manufactured by the sugar industry in Brazil and other countries has been successfully mixed upto a certain percentage with petrol. This is a relatively new area of business for the sugar industry in India.

We are happy to let our shareholders know, that we have started the production of Ethanol-Bio Fuel in March 2003. The Ethanol plant has been commissioned by Messrs. Associated Engineers. Gujarat and the plant has a capacity of producing upto 20,000 LPD.

The Ethanol production is based on the Azeotropic Distillers method in which Benzene is used as a entariner.
The Ethanol plant is having two columns. One is a dehydration column which is having 48 plates and 1200mm diameter, rectified spirit is main raw material for ethanol . Ethanol of purity 99.6% is tapped from the bottom plates of the same column . The possible losses of Benzene & Rectified Spirit during the distillation column are recovered through the recovery column and are again fed to the dehydration column .

The Ethanol of purity 99.6% thus produced, is stored in to the air tight receivers.

We would like to proudly mention, that we have started the issuing of ethanol i.e. Bio Fuel to the Petroleum Companies like IOCL, BPCL etc., for 5% blending with petrol.

Rectified Spirit :

Rectified Spirit is produced from cane molasses. The molasses is diluted & fermentation is done by using yeast as a catalyst. After fermentation, the Rectified Spirit is produced by means of fractional distillation in a copper column
Finally, the Rectified Spirit is collected & stored in M.S tanks.

Rectified Spirit is used in the preparation of Medicines, Syrups and Perfumes.
It is also used for the preparation of extra neutral alcohol, absolute alcohol, ethyl actitate and acetic acid.

The Ugar Sugar Works Distillery division is producing Rectified Spirit of ISI grade, first and middle grade alcohol. The licensed capacity of Rectified Spirit is 75,000 Litres per day.

Malt Spirit:

We are Producing Quality Malt Spirit for the last 20 Years. It is produced with a good quality malt grains, which we are bringing from the state of Haryana.

Malt grains are crushed (powdered) properely to the required size and the powedered malt is slowly added in to the mashing tank along with the hot water of temperature 67 degree C (maintained constantly). Then the cooled malt liquid of brix 15o is fermented into pre-cleaned sterilized fermented by adding yeast and enzymes.

After completion of the fermentation reaction, the final brix is about 0.5 to 0.0 and the fermented malt liquid contains abount 5 to 6% of Alcohol . It is then distilled in well equipped pot stills maintianing proper temperature and pressure.

Thus the good quality malt spirit is produced and is stored in stainless steel receivers. The same malt spirit is matured in oak tree wooden vats and casks in well moisturized warehouses.
The matured malt spirit is used for blending of our own IML Brands and also it is sold to outside parties.

Extra Neutral Alcohol is used for production of various types of IML products. As per ISI requirements, we are having 2 ENA plants at the Distillery Section of capacity 10 LPD and 6.5 LPD respectively.
By Products and Their Usage:-
The fermentation sludge is dried and separated . It is used for Poultry feeds.
Fusel Oil is separated from the distillery Section (Mixture of Higher Alcohol) and used for Amyl Alcohol/Perfumes.

Carbon Dioxide is also produced in the fermentation process. It is scrubbed and filled in the Cylinders. It is used for Industrial purpose.
