FUEL ETHANOL, 99.5% V/V ALCOHOL STRENGTH
Fuel Ethanol is a non food grade alcohol. Malawi is among a few countries in the world producing and using Fuel Ethanol. The Fuel Ethanol is blended with petrol in the ratio 20% ethanol to 80% petrol by the petroleum companies such as Puma Energy Malawi Limited, Petroda Limited, Engen, Energem Petroleum Limited and TOTAL Malawi Limited.
Petroleum companies are the sole customers of this product. Ensuring full enforcement of mandatory blending can further increase the size of Fuel Ethanol market locally.
RECTIFIED SPIRIT, 95.0 - 97.0% V/V ALCOHOL STRENGTH
This is an industrial grade alcohol. Rectified Spirit has many derivatives which have diverse use in a wide range of industries like chemical, packaging etc. It is one of the most important and versatile products in the chemical industry.
This is a very good solvent and is also used as methylated spirit among other uses.
Rectified Spirit can also be used to fuel a Flexi Fuel Vehicle at either 100% or at any combination with Petrol. The Malawi Government recently approved the use of ethanol as a fuel in its own right. Once this policy is implemented, we expect an increase in the consumption of the local Rectified Spirit on the market.
