Indian sugar mills boost ethanol production 50% during 2015/16

In India, sugar mills are responding to increased demand for ethanol thanks to the policy changes made to make it easier for them to supply ethanol to oil marketing companies, producing 50% more of the fuel during 2015/16 at 1.1 billion liters. As a result, mills were able to supply 4.4% of gasoline consumption compared to just over 2% the previous year. To achieve the boost in supply availability, the food ministry worked with mills located near oil depots to ensure supplies were available.
