The Petroleum Secretary has said that from April 1, 2023, 20 per cent ethanol will be blended in petrol.
There is a big development for sugar companies as the Petroleum Secretary has said that from April 1, 2023, 20 per cent ethanol will be blended in petrol. The Cabinet Committee on Wednesday increased the price of ethanol, and now the target to achieve ethanol blending has been reduced.
Talking about this, Zee Business Research Analyst Varun Dubey informed that Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) does around 9 per cent of ethanol blending and by the end of this year, it is planning to increase it to 10 per cent.

That is if by FY22-end the company takes it to 10 per cent then it will have to double ethanol blending in one year. The analyst said that earlier the target of 20 per cent ethanol blending achievement was 2030, which was then reduced to 2025.
He said that it a big development as ethanol blending can bring good profits. He said Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways had said that if you want to reduce petroleum cost then blending of more ethanol can help.
