Extra neutral alcohol (ENA), also known as absolute alcohol, is a food grade alcohol, which is colorless and has a neutral smell and taste. It is largely produced using grain and molasses as the raw materials. ENA plants are usually based on the principles of multi-pressure-cascading techniques, and the process control is done by digital distributed control system. Extra neutral alcohol is used in the production of potable alcohols. In addition, it finds a wide range of applications in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries. In the pharmaceutical industry, extra neutral alcohol is a prime carrier for a whole spectrum of medicines, and is therefore used for processing a wide range of drugs. In the flavors and fragrance industry, dilute ethanol is used to produce distilled vinegar, flavor extracts, and concentrates for soft drinks and food products.

The growth of the extra neutral alcohol market is expected to be driven by increase in consumption of alcoholic beverages during the forecast period. Improved standard of living of consumers and increase in their disposable incomes are expected to boost the demand for premium alcohols, which in turn is anticipated to fuel the growth of the extra neutral alcohol market in future. Implementation of stringent regulations on alcohol use, owing to rise in alcohol abuse in South Africa is anticipated to hamper the growth of the extra neutral alcohol industry in this region. However, the development of first- or second-generation biofuels from ethanol is projected to create new opportunities for the market players.
