Sao Paulo: According to the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA), the country consumed a record-high volume of ethanol last year. Consumption reached 32.8 billion litres, up 10.5 per cent from a year ago.
As per reports, the consumption of hydrated ethanol, which is used pure as fuel, was 22.5 billion litres and remaining 10.3 billion litres were anhydrous ethanol, an addictive to gasoline.
The falling prices of sugar in the international market has helped Brazil to emphasise more on ethanol production. The excess production of sugar kept the prices low, and the mills turned back to their favourite ethanol production.
