"Pakistan is a market which needs ethanol for use in many areas, including but not limited to fuel blending, disinfectants,
screen wash, polish and paints industry, inks industry, perfumes, and more specifically, in areas where there is an acute
shortage of natural gas or no availability of gas - ethanol can be used for cooking through ethanol stoves (like already being
done in India). The use of ethanol stoves in Pakistan needs to be developed urgently to save our forests which are being
cut down due to heat requirements of households in Northern Areas and this will be a great achievement for Pakistan. Also
important to note where, in todays Pakistan, we see long lines at petrol pumps for CNG, ethanol can be developed to be
used for small vehicles and rickshaws and motorcycles whereby CNG can be replaced with ethanol. The Government of
Pakistan is requested to urgently look into the above issues and assist the ethanol industry in achieving the above key target
They are exporting ethanol at the rate of around 80 rupees per kilo before distribution charges ...
can surely be sold at much less rate in the local market as fuel ...
i dont know why sugar mills themselves dont make this move ..
