Volka & Ethanol Fueling Algae Growth

I was wondering in a specific tank condition where nitrate has been zero and with high PO4, naturally there will not be enough nitrate to strike a balance to encourage Bacteria growth for PO4 elimination. In this case, will the excess ethanol/volka, unused by bacteria be a source of algae growth?? Wonder what's the chemical composition of Volka & Ethanol, chances of these substance being a fuel for alage growth?

Regards,
Max

I thought they were talking about the nitrates that were produced were then broken down, and when the nitrates were gone, the fact that the nitrates were now gone would allow the the PO4 to be released.
Thanks,
Joe
