Copersucar sees Brazilian sugar mills producing 1 billion extra liters of ethanol next year

November 6, 2017 |

In Brazil, Copersucar expects sugar mills to continue their focus on ethanol production over sugar in the next center-south sugarcane harvest set to kick off in April. The company’s CEO says with the same amount of cane likely to be crushed next year as this year, it could account for an extra 1 billion liters of ethanol production. Although mills currently make better returns on ethanol than sugar, existing contracts limited their flexibility in shifting production during the season but that many of those agreements will have finished by April.
