Whether the aim is to minimize ethanol loss or reduce ethanol (VOC) emissions, a dedicated Ethanol Recovery System (ERS) can extract up to 95 % of ethanol entrained in vented raw fermentation gas. Besides, the ERS can concentrate the captured ethanol up to 12% v/v thus making it possible to feed scrubber bottoms to distillation.

Traditionally, ambient water is used to scrub ethanol from (fermentation) vent gas/from fermenters. To reduce ethanol losses, this scrub water is pumped back to processes upstream such as fermenters. This scrub water recycling process leads to
Haffmans’ Ethanol Recovery System (ERS) removes ethanol and water vapor entrained in the fermentation gas.
