We manufacture and sell fuel-grade ethanol to petroleum retailers. This ethanol is blended with petroleum (usually at 10%) and sold at the bowser as what’s called E10.
Ethanol has a number of benefits over petroleum: it's renewable; it’s cleaner burning; and one litre of Sucrogen’s bioethanol has less than 50% of the emissions of a litre of petrol*. But not all ethanols are equal, or equally good. It’s important to note that our sugar/molasses-based ethanol is a sustainable resource. So unlike corn and grain, it contains no protein, fat or vitamins – and poses no threat to food staple production.
Ethanol is emerging as one of the world's new performance fuels. In 2009, the V8 Supercars - Australia’s peak motorsport series - recognised its benefits. It changed to E85, an 85% ethanol blend, as a control fuel for all races including the iconic Bathurst 1000 competition. Holden is following suit with its iconic Commodore.
* as measured on a life cycle basis
Our new-look Sucrogen brand made its public debut at Australia's Clipsal 500 V8 Supercar Series in Adelaide in March 2010.
This follows on from V8 Supercars Australia making the switch to e85 at the beginning of the ‘09 season. more
