Our US ethanol business has a presence in New York, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. We offer ethanol storage, supply and distribution in each of these key markets. For both fuel and industrial ethanol, our growing presence across Africa, Europe and Asia enables us to offer a unique service to supply customers around the world. In addition, we have entered into strategic partnerships with renewable fuel blending capability in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. 1WEC sells its ethanol primarily to refiners and gasoline blenders under term and spot contracts in the wholesale bulk markets. The ethanol is distributed through logistics assets, which include railcars and ships owned by our partners. Our network of grain elevators helps supply the corn-based ethanol industry.
- US & Brazil produced 84% of the worlds’ fuel ethanol in 2019.
- Ethanol is produced either as a petrochemical or through the fermentation of agricultural goods such as corn, sugarcane and other crops.
- Ethanol has many industrial applications, but is most commonly used as a motor fuel component which is added to gasoline.
- Today, most US cars run on gasoline comprising up to 10 percent ethanol, known as E10.
- However, in some countries gasoline blends with up to 85 percent ethanol (E85) are also available.
- The United States is both the largest consumer of gasoline, accounting for about two fifths of the world’s consumption on an annual basis, as well as the largest single renewable fuel market in the world.
- In 2012, the country switched to become a net importer of ethanol from being a net exporter the previous year, thus reflecting its growing domestic demand.
- Brazil is currently the world’s second largest ethanol producer while Europe, Africa and the fast growing Asian economies are rapidly moving into this expanding market.
- Ethanol has been part of our trading portfolio since 2001. In that time we have seen global supply and demand grow exponentially.
- A major focal point of our business, we are committed to making sure ethanol meets the necessary ASTM specification while understanding how ethanol fits into our customers base gasoline stock.
- Anhydrous ethanol: ethyl alcohol with a minimum alcohol content of 99.6 GL, used as gasoline additive and in the production of paints, solvents and varnishes;
- It receives this name because it is comprised of 99.3% ethanol, practically void of water. It is marketed to fuel distributors to be added to gasoline, in the USA, the average is 10%, depending on local regulations.
- Its use reduces pollution and contributes to the reduction of global warming. Our anhydrous ethanol is mixed in gasoline to improve its octane.
- The mixture is made in different proportions according to the legislation of each country.
- Hydrous ethanol: ethyl alcohol with alcohol content between 95.1 and 96 GL, used as fuel for vehicles or by the chemical industry;
- This ethanol contains up to 7.5% water in its composition and is sold to distributors that market it to end consumers, in service stations. It can be used pure, or mixed in any proportion to gasoline in flex fuel vehicles, very common in Brazil.
- As with anhydrous ethanol, it provides the same environmental benefits and improves engine performance. Our hydrous ethanol is used for industrial purposes like the production of green polyethylene, cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and more.
- Neutral ethanol, Extra neutral ethanol and Simple Alcoholic Distillate from Sugarcane (DASC); obtained from Hydrous Ethanol, characterized by low impurities levels, which make them suitable to beverage, cosmetic, chemical and pharmaceutical industries;
- Fusel oil: a by-product of the alcohol distillation process, it consists mainly of isoamyl alcohol and is used in the chemical industry for the production of solvents, varnishes and fixative in perfumery, among others.
- Clients are major fuel distributors, which acquire both anhydrous ethanol – to be added to gasoline in ratios according to local legislation in force – and hydrous ethanol, intended for consumers in service stations.
- In addition to automobiles, ethanol can also be fuel for motorcycles, trucks, buses and even airplanes..
- Ethanol reduces by more than 70% the emission of carbon dioxide when compared to gasoline, considering the total cycle of the product (from the manufacture to the exhaust of the engine).
- This is because ethanol is produced by a plant, which in photosynthesis absorbs the carbon dioxide from the burning of the product that was itself raw material.
- If you compare all the greenhouse gases, the reduction reaches almost 90%.

- 192 proof ethanol, or ethanol 96% is a high purity medical grade ethyl alcohol.
- Our 192 proof ethanol is made by fermenting sugarcane molasses, grain or sugarbeet.
- After fermentation, the ethanol is purified through repeated distillation and rectified to 96% alcohol content.
- As a bulk supplier of ethanol, we offer various bulk packaging options of this 192 proof extra neutral alcohol.
- What are the uses of 192 proof ethanol
- Ethanol uses include the production of pharmaceuticals and the production of disinfectants.
- This kosher alcohol is used as a solvent in laboratory use, and also commonly used for cleaning surfaces or making tinctures.
- Lastly, ethanol is used to dissolve water-insoluble medication.
- To meet the pharmaceutical and medical industry quality requirements our 192 proof ethanol complies with
- United States Pharmacopeia (USP),
- British Pharmacopeia (BP),
- Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP)
- European Pharmacopeia (EP) standards.
- It is also GMO free and is produced at a Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) certified site in accordance with GMP conditions.
96% ethanol has the UN1170 code for transport.
- Product batch release certificates are possible upon request.
