Green's Ethanol Micro Distillery (EMD) is equipment for small scale bioethanol production. Its continuous system technology produces from 95º up to 99.5º GL bioethanol (hydrous/anhydrous) at different capacities, ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 liter/day plants, according to the demand in each community. The EMD is capable of processing several varieties of agricultural crops into bioethanol. The process is energy-efficient due to use of a modern enzyme that works at ~30ºC, resulting in a positive net energy gain.

Costs may vary according to project’s conditions and feedstock available. For a scenario of ethanol production 24/7, the prices of one EMD operating with the following feedstocks and capacities is approximately: - Cassava 2500 lpd: USD 485,000 - Sugar Cane/Sweet Sorghum 1500 lpd: USD 285,000 The costs may vary by country of destination, sugar content of the feedstock, among others. For specific projects, please contact us.
Weight and dimensions
7 tons, depending on the model.
Fits in a 10mx15m warehouse
Ethanol 95 ºGL is produced at a rate of 41,5 to 62,5 ltrs/h according to the sugar and starch content of the feedstock. Overall, the production capacity of an EMD can vary from 500 liters/day up until 10.000 liters/day of bioethanol.

One Green Ethanol Micro Distillery designed to produce 2.500 liters of bioethanol per day impacts ~2.000 families, providing them with a clean renewable fuels for cooking. It also prevents deforesting of more than 10 tons of wood a day, which can save up to 3.000 trees in a year, and avoids the emission of up to 18,000 tons of CO2 in a year. With one liter of bioethanol produced in Green Social's micro-distillery it is possible to cook three meals for a family of five people. Green's EMD was especially designed for the needs of poor rural communities with a lack of energy supply. The additional solution we propose is an ethanol-powered generator to supply energy for the plant itself, while more than 80% of the ethanol produced from the EMD can still be used in clean cookstoves among other uses.
