Brazilian sugar mills keep focus on ethanol production

October 11, 2017 |

In Brazil, mills shifted 53.5% of the sugarcane crush towards ethanol production during the second half of October, 3.6% higher than during the same period last year. Mills began switching towards ethanol production in mid-July or August and continue to favor it, helping to boost sugar prices in return. The volume crushed during the period was far lower than expected at 40.31 million metric tons, but higher sugar content in the cane helped to offset the drop in volume.
