Reducing the Cost of Sugar and Ethanol Production: A Case Study

A Brazilian sugar and ethanol company had tried to reduce operating costs but was constantly paying for plant maintenance and modernization. By partnering with Nalco Water, they achieved a significant reduction in total operating costs and reduced their sulfuric acid consumption by an average of of 22% per year.

Boiler Protection for Ethanol and Biofuel Production

For 80+ years, Ecolab has worked in thousands of boiler plants supporting the production of safe, reliable and cost-effective steam. Our corrosion stress monitor responds to preboiler corrosion stress in real time, delivering the correct dose of oxygen scavenger or passivator. Our 3D TRASAR™ Boiler System then uses fluorescence technology to prevent scale formation inside your boiler. It also identifies potential causes of system variability and abnormal conditions, making it a powerful diagnostic tool.
Cooling Water Treatment
