Sugar mills get orders to supply 302 cr litres of ethanol.
May 04, 2021

Sugar mills across the country have contracted orders to supply 302.3 crore litres of ethanol to oil marketing companies (OMCs). This is 70 per cent more than the 178 crore litres supplied in the previous season.
This will help mills to reduce sugar production by 20 lakh tonnes (lt) due to the diversion of sugarcane juice and B-heavy molasses for ethanol production in this current sugar season.
According to the Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA), 117.72 crore litres of ethanol have already been delivered for the country’s ethanol blending programme. Nearly 77 per cent of this quantity was produced from sugarcane juice and B-heavy molasses. India’s ethanol marketing season extends from December to November next year.
