Indian sugar mills hopeful for ethanol recovery as cane production bounces back

October 16, 2017 |

In India, along with the major recovery in sugarcane production, mills are hoping ethanol production will also bounce back so they can better supply the country’s 10% ethanol blending mandate. Due to drought and low cane production, they were only able to supply 2.5% towards the mandate during the previous season, about 710 million liters. Currently estimates are that mills could provide 4% towards the blending mandate thanks to a boost in production in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh.
