Brazilian sugar mills continue to push more towards ethanol and shun sugar

December 3, 2018 |

In Brazil, Reuters reports that sugar mills continue to shun sugar in favor of ethanol production and are investing in more production capacity of ethanol to help ensure continued focus on the fuel while the globe swims in sugar supply. That focus on ethanol already in the 2018/19 season will see sugar production at a 12-year low with nine million metric tons of sugar destined for ethanol. RenovaBio is pushing for more ethanol production, with government estimates seeing more than 47 billion liters of consumption by 2028 compared to 26.7 billion liters in 2018.
