British commodities consultancy S & P Global Platts announced this week its production estimates for the second half of April to the Center-South of Brazil. The figures anticipate the final data from this period released by Unica fortnightly.
After listening to the market, the British consultancy warned of a possible crushing record in the main sugarcane region of the country. Check out the numbers::
- Crushing: 36.27 million tons
- ATR: 117.44 kg / t
- Sugar: 1.726 million tons
- Total Ethanol: 1.447 million m³
- Hydrate: 990,000 m³
- Anhydrous: 456.9 thousand cubic meters
- Sugar: 42.38%
- Ethanol: 57.62%
The projection of 36.27 million tonnes for the second half of April exceeds the previous record in the period when 32.14 mi tonnes were processed in 2013/14.
For Platts, dry weather favored harvesting and sugarcane crushing.
The commodity production in the Center-South is projected at 1.726 million tons, a record number for sustained commercial advantage over ethanol in recent weeks, says the consultancy.
With production estimated at 999,000 cubic meters, hydrous ethanol should lead biofuel production in this half, which has a total production estimated at 1.466 million cubic meters.
