Profitable Farming: Today the whole world is emphasizing on the production of ethanol. It is being considered as a means of keeping the vehicle and the environment safe. As much as ethanol is proving to be effective for the auto-mobile sector, equally it is going to be helpful in increasing the income of the farmers. Let us tell you that ethanol is a type of fuel, which is mixed with petrol and used in vehicles. The central government has set a target of 20% ethanol blending in petrol by the year 2025. Not only in India, ethanol is being used all over the world today. In today’s time, it is known as green fuel, whose main source is sugarcane and maize, although other crops containing sugar can also produce ethanol.
In this article, we will tell you why ethanol is so effective. What will be the benefits to the environment by using it mixed with petrol, and how it will prove to be helpful in increasing the income of the farmers.
These farmers will be benefited
In the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs held on 30 December 2020, a provision was made to set up grain-based furnaces for ethanol production and to expand the old furnaces. Also, sugar based grains like rice, wheat, barley, maize, jowar can also be used to make ethanol.
You will be surprised to know that ethanol is not only used for blending in diesel, but also for varnishes, polishes, drug solutions, extracts, ether, chloroform, artificial colors, soaps, perfumes and as a source of specific odors in fruits. is also done.
Apart from alcohol, ethanol solution is also used as a bactericide to clean the wound and in many researches of the lab. Ethanol is also used to preserve dead organisms and in many medicines. Currently, ethanol production made from paddy and sugarcane is being promoted in the country.
Government’s target regarding ethanol
Its blending in ethanol production petrol is being promoted in the country. The Government of India has a plan to mix 20% ethanol in petrol and sell it in the next 2 to 3 years, so that the cost of expensive oils imported from outside can be saved. For this, the country will have to produce ethanol in sufficient quantity, so that companies can also be helped in blending 20%.
Why is it necessary to use channel
Ethanol is being seen as an eco-friendly fuel. Ethanol blending is said to be effective only to deal with problems like environmental pollution, inflation and engine heat caused by diesel petrol.
According to the report, ethanol acts as a better alternative to deadly fuels like MTBE. According to the report, the use of ethanol also reduces the emission of carbon monoxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and hydrocarbons in the environment by 35%.
Ethanol blending also happens in these countries
In view of the increasing consumption of diesel-petrol and environmental pollution, now almost the whole world is moving towards safer alternatives like ethanol. Maximum blending of 24% ethanol is being done in Brazil. Most of the vehicles in Sweden and Canada are based on the green fuel ethanol.
The government there also gives subsidy to buy such vehicles. Today ethanol is being seen as a great agricultural and eco-friendly product ending the dependence of petrol, where India imports petrol from other countries. In such a situation, by increasing ethanol production, the dependence on petrol can be reduced to a great extent in future.
