India’s ethanol blending with petrol could rise to almost 11 per cent in the current sugar season that started from October, the Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) said today.


This will be a big jump from 8.1 per cent blending seen in last season. Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have issued a requirement of about 9.5 billion litres of ethanol in 2021-22, calculated considering 11 per cent blending, ISMA said.
