Brazilian sugar mills switch to more ethanol as crush begins to wind down

October 24, 2017 |

In Brazil, sugar mills switched towards more ethanol production yet again during the first half of October with 56% of cane use for fuel, against 53% during the previous two-week period and just 50% during H1 October 2016. As a result, ethanol production rose more than 11% to 1.57 billion liters. Mills are starting to wind down the crush, which was noted by the drop in cane crushed during the period to just 32.4 million metric tons compared to more than 40 million tons during the last half of September.
