Almagest is the only Bulgarian producer of bioethanol – dehydrated ethyl alcohol which may be used as a substitute to the gasoline fuel in internal combustion engines.
Using bioethanol for fuelling gasoline engines reduces the green-house gases emitted by minimum 60% compared to ordinary gasoline fuel.
The Bulgarian legislation provides that minimum of 7% of gasoline sold in the gas stations shall be bioethanol.
The international standard requires that the bioethanol has alcohol content of minimum 98.7%. With 99.99% alcohol content, the bioethanol produced by Almagest is well above the requirement.
