Ethanol Recovery Plant from Food Grains

Two methods are currently used to produce ethanol from grain: wet milling and dry milling. The adjectives ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ describe the method, not the product. The different methods affect both the profitability and logistics.

Ethanol Recovery Plant from Food Grains harness the potential agricultural crops like corn, wheat, barley and some other product also to produce ethanol a renewable and eco-friendly biofuel. The Ethanol Recovery Plant from Food Grains play a important role in biofuel industry where food grains are converted into ethanol offering alternative way of fossil fuels. The sustainable approach to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels also contribute the rural economy and helps to reducing green house gas emissions.

An Ethanol Recovery Plant from Food Grains is a vital industrial facility for converting food grains, such as maize, wheat, or barley, into ethanol, a renewable and environmentally friendly biofuel. To create a fine powder, or mash, the food grains are first ground and milled in this process. There are then more advanced steps. After that, an enzyme process known as hydrolysis converts the starches in this mash into simpler sugars, primarily glucose. Yeast ferments the sugar-rich fluid to make ethanol and carbon dioxide after it is created. After fermentation is complete, the ethanol-water mixture is distilled to isolate and concentrate the ethanol.

Dry mills produce ethanol, distillers’ grain and carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide is a co-product of the fermentation, and the distillers’ dried grain with solubles (DDGS) is a non-animal based, high protein livestock feed supplement, produced from the distillation and dehydration process. If distillers’ grains are not dried, they are referred to as distillers’ wet grain (DWG). Wet mill facilities are ‘bio-refineries’ producing a host of high-valued products. Wet mill processing plants produce more valuable by-products than the dry mill process.
