Dhanuka Blog Detail section 2 image

Sugar Industry in India is the second-largest agro based Industry, next to cotton. It caters to around 50 million farmers and their families. The Indian Sugar Industry consist of about 525 sugar mills, 200 distilleries and 260 cogeneration plants. Sugarcane is cultivated commercially in about 115 countries of the world, occupying 26 million hectare area with a total production of nearly 1900 million tons (FAOSTAT 2018)

Sugarcane is primarily used for sugar production but is also used as raw material for value-added products like feed, fibre and energy, especially bio-fuel and cogeneration. Ethanol production and cogeneration of electricity in sugarcane factories have enhanced the importance of sugarcane in the national economy. One sugar factory, on average, produces about 10.0 tons of raw sugar, 30.0 (range 27.0-33.0) tons of bagasse, 4.5 (range 4.0-5.4) tons of molasses, 3.5-3.9 tons of filter/press mud, 0.3 tons of furnace ash, 1200 (range 1125-1300) litres of alcohol by molasses route and 10,000 kW⋅h surplus electricity from every 100 tons of cane crushed (Sharma et al., 2015).
