The product of agricultural crops
Sustainable alcohol fuel for incorporation in gasoline
Cristalco “conventional” bioethanol is obtained from agriculture crops, e g sugar beet and wheat. This is a biofuel intended for gasoline engines. Anhydrous ethanol never contains more than 1% water and conforms to the current EU norm EN15376. Conformity is certified by accredited analytical laboratories.
Mainly French origins
The agricultural raw material for our conventional bioethanol is exclusively European in origin and mostly from France. This allows us to offer a bioethanol with exemplary environmental characteristics and reliable availability.
Our bioethanol is a product of sustainable and responsible agricultural practices. It contributes to the fight against climate warming and allows reductions in greenhouse gases (GES) of 50% minimum, while in terms of whole lifecycle effects (production, conversion, transport, utilisation) reductions can be up to 95% compared to fossil fuel equivalents. The sustainable nature of our bioethanol in terms of European standards (Directive 2009/28/CE as modified by Directive 2015/1513/CE) is independently certified in accordance with the Biomass Biofuels Sustainability voluntary scheme (2BSvs).
Sustainable bioethanol can also be mixed with isobutylene to produce ETBE (Ethyl Tertio Butyl Ether) for inclusion in gasoline, notably SP98, to a maximum of 22%.
Bioethanol is pure anhydrous ethanol and meets the quality requirements of the European standard EN15376 in force.
Service first: remarkable logistics
Cristalco bioethanol delivery is always carefully tailored to customer requirements: by road (35-38m³ tankers); rail, in single wagons or trains (1000 – 1400 tonnes); or by water, in barges or ships (2000 – 5000 tonnes). In addition, stocks at our production sites and at ports allow us to meet any requirement in France or Europe. Finally, we provide individual customs procedures support reinforced by our distribution network and Cristalco international representation, ensuring your order will be fulfilled in the shortest possible time.
