Automation for bioethanol handling in a bioethanol plant
With a combined sugar/bioethanol plant it is possible to use the process to produce ethanol with a purity of either 96% or 99.8% or sugar. The residues can also be marketed as byproducts, e.g. as fodder.
Measurements are necessary e.g. for storing or weighing, with the tank and filling equipment, and for recording the produced or delivered quantity of alcohol.
Siemens offers automation products and solutions, instrumentation, and weighing and drive technology with which all logistics processes of a bioethanol plant can be reliably monitored and controlled.
