What is Ethanol 96%?

192 proof ethanol, or ethanol 96% is a high purity medical grade ethyl alcohol. This rectified spirit is made by fermenting sugarcane molasses, grain or sugarbeet. After fermentation, the ethanol is purified through repeated distillation and rectified to 96% alcohol content. As a bulk supplier of ethanol, Sasma offers various bulk packaging options of this 192 proof extra neutral alcohol.

Quality and Certifications

To meet the pharmaceutical and medical industry quality requirements our 192 proof ethanol complies with United States Pharmacopeia (USP), British Pharmacopeia (BP), Japanese Pharmacopeia (JP) and European Pharmacopeia (EP) standards. It is also GMO free and is produced at a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified site in accordance with GMP conditions.
96% ethanol has the UN1170 code for transport. Product batch release certificates are possible upon request.

Besides adhering to strict quality standards, we can also filter 96% ethanol according to special micronfilter requirements upon request. We are able to supply the highest quality and do so consistently.

Applications and Use

Ethanol uses include the production of pharmaceuticals and the production of disinfectants. This kosher alcohol is used as a solvent in laboratory use, and is commonly used for cleaning surfaces or making tinctures. Lastly, ethanol is used to dissolve water-insoluble medication.



Ethanol is referred to as a first-generation biofuel. When producing ethanol, sources such as starches, sugars, or vegetable oils are broken down. During this process, these sources known as “feedstock” as converted from grains into biofuels that utilize enzymes and other living microorganisms.


Choosing the Feedstock During this step, the type of feedstock is chosen for milling. The most popular grains used for 192 proof ethanol are corn kernels or wheat kernels.


Milling of the Chosen Feedstock Once the grain is chosen, it’s time to begin milling. Milling refers to the biological process in which the kernels are ground into a meal, which is a form of flour. This process uses starches, which are long chains of sugar molecules that classify starches as carbohydrates.


Liquefaction Once milling is complete, liquefaction begins. This is the process in which water is added to the milled kernels to make ‘slurry,’ which is then heated to break up the long starch molecules chained together into smaller pieces. Alpha-amylase is an enzyme that is added to this mixture to speed up, or catalyze, the breakdown of starch molecules.


Saccharification During this step, the starch molecules that were previously broken down into smaller pieces are now broken down into simple sugar glucose. This process uses the enzyme glucoamylase to catalyze this reaction.


Fermentation Fermentation is the biochemical process in which glucose is broken down by yeast. Yeast are the single-cell microorganisms that are added to the slurry that get their energy from the glucose. As a result of this reaction, ethanol is produced.


Distillation and Dehydration The ethanol that was produced during fermentation only ranges from about 10 to 15% ethanol concentration. In order to become 100% ethanol, it must be concentrated. The process to do this is referred to as distillation. In this process, the ethanol is evaporated and condensed at its boiling point (which is lower than waters). The distillation process produced ethanol 95% with the remaining 5% of the mixture being water. Next is the dehydration process. During this process, the mixture is then strained to dehydrate it, producing pure ethanol. Adding a certain level of water will produce the desired percent concentration of ethanol
