Important information about bioethanol

Major Delays

We are experiencing major delays in fulfilment of e-NRG orders.

This is due to a spike in demand for ethanol / isopropyl alcohol (also known as rubbing alcohol) which is the core ingredient used in making hand sanitiser.

It is important that you still place your order online today so that it can be shipped to you in sequence of order received as the demand for ethanol will remain strong during this crisis.

Orders that are placed online will be fulfilled on a rolling order basis. We are in the process of ramping up stock hold for our season as a priority.

Kindly note we will not be offering refunds for delayed fulfilment.

Additional Use - COVID-19

e-NRG is an F4 solution made from 99% ethanol (ethyl alcohol C2H50H) which has been denatured with 1% Tert-Butyl alcohol (TBA) which makes it an ideal disinfectant when mixed with water (70% ethyl alcohol / 30% water).

Ethanol (ethyl alcohol, C2H5OH) and 2-propanol (isopropyl alcohol, (CH3)2CHOH) have similar disinfectant properties. They are active against vegetative bacteria, fungi, and lipid-containing viruses but not against spores.

Isopropyl alcohol (C3H8O), also known as rubbing alcohol, is an alcoholic mixture intended for external use as an antiseptic; it usually contains 70% by volume of absolute alcohol or isopropyl alcohol; the remainder consists of water, denaturants, and perfume oils.

Ethyl alcohol (70%) is a powerful broad-spectrum germicide and is considered generally superior to isopropyl alcohol.

Since alcohol is flammable, limit its use as a surface disinfectant to small surface-areas and use it in well-ventilated spaces only.

e-NRG (Ethyl alcohol F4 solution) could be used in homemade hand sanitiser recipes. Ethanol (F4 solution) on its own should never be used to disinfect hands since ethanol will cause dryness of the skin.

Be kind and stay safe.

We'll do our very best to keep the flow of positive e-NRG coming your way.
