Brazilian hydrous ethanol prices slide on expected ICMS tax cap

June 1, 2022 |

In Brazil, Platts reports hydrous ethanol prices in the key center-south producing region have slid by $193.67 per cubic meter to $765.29 from the highs seen in mid-April when the slow start to the sugarcane crush tightened supplies.
