Sanjivani sugar factory eyes ethanol production

Ponda: The nearly five-decade old Sanjivani sugar factory at Dayanandnagar, Dharbandora, is mulling production of ethanol in a bid to transform the loss-making unit into a profitable one. The petroleum product has a good demand in the market.
The plan came to light after the factory’s administrator Chintamani B Perni requested Deccan Sugar Technologists Association (India), Pune to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) for production of ethanol.
Perni said that sugar is no longer profitable as there are many producers. On the contrary, ethanol has a huge demand.. “Since there is a 12% deficit in ethanol supply, it would see good demand. It would also enable petroleum companies to get ethanol within the state, which in turn would help reduce fuel cost,” Perni said.
The factory is planning to have a 40 KLD ethanol production unit. “We are planning to use local cane for the initial three months from October to December, then cane from Karnataka for the next three months from January to March and molasses for the following three months from April to June, to produce the ethanol,” Perni said.
