Among the fuels produced by Umoe is Hydrated Ethanol, which is the fuel used in ethanol-powered vehicles, and Anhydrous Ethanol , which is used in a mixture with gasoline for use in gasoline-powered vehicles.
Check below the process for the production of Hydrated Ethanol and Anhydrous Ethanol:
Some stages of agricultural production:
Umoe's cane fields are 100% mechanized, using high-performance harvesters, in addition to cutting-edge technologies (GPS, 4G communication, among others).
Efficient, low-carbon, high-capacity trucks are used to transport the sugarcane harvested from the cane fields to the industry.
The industrial process begins with the analysis of the quality of the raw material that arrives from the field, followed by the milling process, where all the juice existing in the plant will be extracted.
At this stage, the broth undergoes physical-chemical processes as a way of removing the mineral and vegetable impurities present.
The pure broth then receives a biochemical treatment, where the yeasts carry out the fermentation of the broth, generating CO2 and wine (ethanol + water).
The fermented wine is subjected to the centrifugation process, thus recovering the yeasts, separating them from the ethanol and water mixture that go on to distillation.
Through evaporation and condensation, ethanol is separated from the wine and from this process, hydrated ethanol (used in ethanol-powered vehicles) is produced.
When hydrated ethanol is subjected to the dehydration process, its water share is even more reduced, and thus gives rise to anhydrous ethanol (that which is mixed in gasoline).
