The making of ethanol
We introduce canteen food wastes in 250 L barrel and we fermented during 3 months; After this Fermentation we distilled with our Alembic and we obtain ethanol + water.
We obtain this two chemistry equations :
For saccharose and glucose :
This Bioethanol can be mixed with fuel. We obtain E10=10% of ethanol; E80=80% of ethanol ...etc. If we have 20% of ethanol we need an ethanol Kit to the motor.
- Selective Sorting
We have create in our school kitchen a selective sorting. This selective sorting contain 3 barrels.
- First barrel contain fruits, vegetables with sugar necessary to making of ethanol.
- Second barrel contain meats and food starch.
-Third barrel contain all non-food wastes
We pick out the first barrel and we separate sugar food and non-food wastes (paper...etc). After, we have transfered this wates in 250L barrel, we have added water and yeast. And we fermented during 3 months.
- Ethanol Distillation with our Alembic
We have create our Alembic with presssure cocotte and cooling tube (cold water).
