Italian bioethanol market leader

In 1990, I.M.A. established itself as the leading Italian bioethanol production facility by constructing the biggest Italian molecular sieve’s plant for the production of dehydrated alcohol at 99,9%vol. The original production capacity was 300 m3/day.

Since then, the company has further enhanced its operations by doubling its production capacity to 600 m3/day with the addition of a second dehydration plant and raising its storage capacity to 36.000 m3 using exclusively stainless steels tanks.

Today, I.M.A. is a sustainable leader in the production and supply of “BIOETHANOL”: and a strategic chemical logistic operator in the Mediterranean Sea.
