Brazil’s Centre-South hydrous ethanol sales hits new record, 38% higher

May 12, 2018 |

In Brazil, data from industry association UNICA shows that Brazil’s Centre-South ethanol producers produced 1.3 billion liters of hydrous ethanol in the second half of April, up 115.7% year on year, and up 52% from H1 April.

“This is a record for the H2 April period and the highest since the H2 August of 2015, when the region was at the peak of the 2015-16 season. And Since 2010-11 there have been only three two-week periods that saw production rates of this magnitude,” said UNICA technical director Antonio Rodrigues.

Anhydrous ethanol production was 429.88 million liters, up 28.78% from a year ago and up 214% from H1 April, when there was a reduction of output rates due to the obligation to carry stocks at the beginning of the crop.

The 2018-19 sugarcane season officially started on April 1 in the key Center-South region, the world’s largest sugarcane and sugar producer.
