Bioethanol

Bioethanol is a clear colourless liquid made from an extremely refine sugarcane process, produced locally in Australia. The flashpoint of bioethanol is 12.7°C and the boiling point is 78°C with a specific gravity of 0.79. The bioethanol is denatured alcohol which means that it cannot be consumed as the bitrex in it is extremely bitter and unpalatable. Bioethanol can be used to extract oils, disinfectant, sterilise medical equipment, as a window cleaner, and there are many more uses. Additionally, bioethanol is perfect for indoor or outdoor bioethanol heaters.

Bioethanol mixes well with water, and you will find that ethyl alcohol is a common ingredient in cosmetics, cleaners, and fuels. When using bioethanol on the skin as rubbing alcohol it is recommended to dilute it down to about 70%. You can also add in a fragrance to mix with bioethanol to make as a disinfectant to use around the home.
