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.


The production process of anhydrous or hydrous ethanol can be carried out in different ways, with different raw materials. In Brazil, the main source is sugarcane.


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.


Our operations are capable of producing 3.3 billion liters of ethanol.
