Distillation is Energy Intensive.

Since distillation is an energy intensive process, there are big opportunities to reduce costs by using waste heat from another process as well as lower quality fuel. The usual fuels for distillation are electicity and natural gas. Some possible alternative fuels are oil, wood/charcoal, ethanol itself, engine or furnace exhaust, solar, biogas (methane from organic decomposition), syngas (from biomas gasifier).
