CSR is one of the few commercial organic solvents which can make such a claim because CSR ETHANOL is derived from BIOMASS and therefore; CSR ETHANOL DOES NOT CONTRIBUTE TO GLOBAL WARMING.
How's CSR ETHANOL produce??
CSR produces ETHANOL (and methylated spirit) in Australia by fermenting sugar cane molasses. The sugar cane itself grows annually and in doing so absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. That carbon dioxide is released back into the atmosphere when human begins covert sugar to energy; when ethanol is released (as a solvent) into the atmosphere (where it quickly breaks down into carbon dioxide and water); and when the cane fiber (or bagasse) is burned to provide steam used in the extraction and purification of ethanol and sugar. That released carbon dioxide is then recycled from the atmosphere back into the growing crop of sugar cane. And so, the cycle begins again. This process creates no net change in the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. Thus fermentation ethanol is greenhouse neutral. Ethanol produced from plant material (or biomass) is sometimes called BIO-ETHANOL.
