June 27, 2016 |

Though the distillery’s alcohol production capacity is much higher, it will begin with about 120,000 liters of ethanol production. Sugar mills have had a difficult time supplying enough ethanol to achieve the country’s new 10% blending mandate, finally able to supply 5% after struggling to ramp up production from less than 3%.
