SUGAR :

White / Refined Sugar -

White sugar is sugar which has been refined and washed so that it has a white appearance and no molasses flavour. It contains 99.9% sucrose. It is normally consumed in households and being relatively neutral in flavour, it is used as an ingredient in various edible processed foods and beverages.

 

VHP (Very High Polarised) Sugar -

It is a type of raw sugar, manufactured mainly in Brazil, which is classified as a chemical product which is easy to transport and need further refining before it can be used for consumption. In recent years, VHP sugar (raw sugar) has been a standard sugar category traded on the international market. 

BIOFUEL

Ethanol:

Ethanol can either be produced by direct fermentation of Sugarcane juice or from molasses, which is a by-product of the sugar manufacturing process. In India, ethanol can be produced only from molasses whereas, mills in Brazil produce ethanol directly from sugarcane juice. Ethanol can be used for potable alcohol industry, chemical industry and as a bio-fuel in vehicles (direct/blended with gasoline).

A biofuel is a fuel that is produced through contemporary biological processes, such as agriculture and anaerobic digestion, rather than a fuel produced by geological processes such as those involved in the formation of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, from prehistoric biological matter. Biofuel can be obtained from Sugarcane, Jatropha, Pongamia, Casava, Sweet sorghum and Corn.
