Denatured or Industrial Alcohol by Rufus Frost Herrick
DENATURED OR INDUSTRIAL ALCOHOL by Rufus Frost Herrick
EARLY 1900s INDUSTRIAL-SCALE ALCOHOL PRODUCTION
Every single way of making alcohol on an industrial scale -- or small scale: Topics on fermentation, organisms, source material, mashes, crops to use, yield, formulas, distillation, byproducts, heat measurement, usage in engines and much more. The book covers the usage of alcohol for cooking, heating and illumination, just to name a few. It even has details on converting sawdust and other organic material to a form that can be digested by alcohol yeasts to make ethyl alcohol.
