Ethanol is a clear colourless liquid made from a natural sugarcane process. The ethanol boiling point of ethanol is 78 °C and the flashpoint is 11 °C. The product is commonly found as ethanol fuel in e10 fuel, often referred to as grain alcohol or ethyl alcohol. Our ethanol is 99% with a 1% denaturant in it so it is not food safe or suitable for drinking. Ethanol can be used to extract oils, disinfectant, sterilise medical equipment, as a window cleaner, and there are many more uses. Additionally, ethanol is perfect for indoor or outdoor ethanol heaters.
Ethanol mixes well with water, and you will find that ethyl alcohol is a common ingredient in cosmetics, cleaners and fuels. When using ethanol 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 ethanol to make as a disinfectant to use around the home.

Ethanol vs. Bioethanol
Both the chemicals are designed to process the same way for all applications. The only difference is how the both ethanols are made. The bioethanol is considered to be made through an environmentally process, that is eco-friendly, whereas the ethanol is processed differently
