  • The government has decided to allow sugar mills to manufacture ethanol directly from sugarcane juice or intermediate product called B-molasses.

    The sugarcane control order of 1966 has been amended in this regard as notified by the Union Food Ministry. The move would help mills divert cane juice for ethanol manufacturing during surplus years.

    So far, mills were allowed to manufacture ethanol from by-product called C-molasses, after sugar was taken out while processing raw cane juice.
