Ethanol production from molasses fermentation

Process flowsheet of ethanol production from molasses by fermentation

Diagram describing the process of ethanol production from molasses fermentation. Molasses from the storage tank is sent to continous diluter and fed to fermentation tanks. In the flow diagram the yeast preparation and storage is shown on top of fermentation tank. Carbon dioxide from the fermentation tank is scrubbed using water. The right section of the process diagram show the distillation section that separates aldehydes, fusel oil and water. 100 % to 95% pure ethanol is produced.
