Alcohol through corn,
maize, Grain, starch etc.
In India production of
alcohol apart from molasses & sugarcane route the non-molasses route
like maize, starch, corn grain, sweet sorghum, tapioca, sugar beet are
also equally getting importance as the climatic conditions for such
type of agricultural crops suits in India. It is a right time for the
central government through ministry of agriculture to encourage and
assist state governments to introduce a policy of using only
grain-based alcohol for potable purpose. Molasses based alcohol may be
used for industrial use as well as fuel blending.

In Indian conditions
the existing starch manufacturing units can produce alcohol as one of
the by-product to make the project more feasible.
Process through Sweet Sorghum
route for manufacturing alcohol
sorghum is rich in stalk sucrose & sugars which resemble exactly
sugarcane for its juicy stalk as has an advantage over sugarcane for
alcohol production. The sugarcane stalks has a great potential to
comparison with sugarcane as the sugarcane molasses rates have
become highly sensitive varying from Rs.3000 per tons to Rs. 7000
per tons. Ultimately resulting in a instability in the price of
alcohol. This condition make sweet sorghum to ethanol not only
competitive with the sugarcane route, but also can act as a
Experts in the opinion that the average cost of ethanol production
from sweet sorghum is around Rs. 13.25 per liter which makes it a
most feasible raw material for production of ethanol in an entire
year as minimum two crops could be taken in one year.
