BHL is also one of the largest ethanol producer. It is the pioneer of India's fuel ethanol program and is currently producing 38 million liters of ethanol in a year. In anticipation of emerging market demand, the Company has increased its ethanol manufacturing capacity to nearly 218 million liters per year. BHL generates close to 430 MW of power from the bagasse produced in its sugar mills. After meeting its own energy needs, BHL has a surplus of around 100 MW. The Company supplies a significant part of this surplus power to the UP state grid. BHL recently embarked upon the expansion of its power generation capacity by 450 MW through the setting up of new coal based power plants of 90 MW each in the vicinity of 5 of its existing sugar units. These new projects have been commissioned successfully.Read More
