Ethanol Process Chemical Programs

U.S. Water has been part of the growth of the fuel ethanol industry since 1998. We have designed water treatment systems, built and installed equipment, and managed chemical programs for over half of the industry. Due to our tremendous experience in this market, we created the Ethanol Process Technologies division in 2002. Since then we have developed, patented and fielded unique solutions which saved our customers millions of dollars annually. These technologies run the spectrum from pollution abatement, to deposit prevention, to fermentation enhancement, to enhanced corn oil recovery. The one common aspect of these programs is that they are all designed to improve profitability for the fuel ethanol manufacturer.

U.S. Water's Ethanol Process Technologies Group has a complete line of chemical and equipment to provide the best solutions for your ethanol production facility, whether corn, milo, cane or cellulosically derived. Contact us to setup a comprehensive survey of your facility.

    U.S. Water pHytOUT Successfully Controls Mineral Deposits

    Ethanol plants are often challenged with mineral deposits and the loss of heat transfer efficiency in distillation that accompanies these deposits. pHytOUT(R) is a patented deposit control technology from U.S. Water that can enable plants to eliminate specific deposit control such as sulfuric acid usage, caustic usage, temperature loss and increased steam usage to deposit-related heat transfer loss.

    Reducing Water Use in Ethanol Facilities

    ZLD - It stands for “zero liquid discharge,” and it could be an important future trend for the ethanol industry as plants weigh the possible benefits of treating and re-using water that has already been through the plant, rather than discharging liquid into the environment.
