Alcohol Dehydration Plant

As a result of its experience, InterAlco  is highly specialised in the production of advanced bioethanol. This circumstance enables the company to offer the market one of the most sustainable biofuels with the lowest environmental impact.

Advanced bioethanol is a type of biofuel produced from agricultural or forestry wastes or residues, among other raw materials consisting of residual biomass which has no food use and do not compete for land use. Bioethanol prevents over 70% of GHG emissions into the atmosphere, as compared to fossil fuels.

Advanced bioethanol is presented as a more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional biofuels, as it does not compete with food crops and can use waste materials or agricultural residues which could otherwise end up in landfills or as greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, advanced bioethanol can have a positive impact on the rural economy by providing a source of income for farmers and biomass producers. 

The European Union is working towards the transition to advanced biofuels. As  per the Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001/EU (RED II), the EU's objective is to progressively increase the percentage of renewable energy used in transport until 2030, including specific objectives, likewise gradual, for advanced biofuels. In EU legislation, advanced biofuels are defined according to the materials used for their production, and in the corresponding section (Part A of Annex IX) of the RED II, the types of biomasses which are accepted to produce advanced biofuels are clearly stipulated.

The bioethanol produced at the Dehydration Plant in Alcázar de San Juan (Ciudad Real) is manufactured under stringent quality controls, from certified alcohols from materials included in Part A of Annex IX of the RED II. Our bioethanol is used as an additive in traditional gasoline or directly as a biofuel by the major European Oil Operators.



Bioethanol (dehydrated ethanol)

  • ​CEN EN 15376:2014 and UNE EN 15376:2015 Standards
