Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits

The Alcohol School

For almost 40 years, The Alcohol School has been educating fuel ethanol and distilled spirits producers in the multidisciplinary sciences of alcohol production. The course is designed to provide our delegates with detailed information on fuel ethanol and distilled spirits unit processes. Separate sessions for fuel and distilled spirits concepts are held, but where the technologies overlap, sessions are done with both groups together. Both the European and North American programs are designed for lab, plant, and management personnel and are organized around lectures, laboratory demonstrations, seminars, and lab visits. Our course is also appropriate for suppliers and government personnel to provide understanding and training. This important resource is becoming more valuable every year as the market growth is making the need for continual education a must. Networking is encouraged at meals, organized dinners and tours.
