Fiji announces plans to construct ethanol plant

March 16, 2023 |

In Fiji, The Fiji Times reported that Government will build an ethanol plant at Rakiraki. Sugar Minister Charan Jeath Singh said the new ethanol plant would generate income for Fiji Sugar Corporation (FSC). This income would allow FSC to get rid of years of relying on Government loans, the ministry said. “The plant in Rakiraki will make ethanol and this plan has come up after we visited India and saw how all sugar mills there make ethanol,” he said. “We will use sugar cane juice to make ethanol and sell it so that the company can get some other form of income,” the official added.
