Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) has joined the BioFuture Campaign, a global initiative launched by the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) to promote sustainable bio-energy development and deployment in India. India is currently chairing the CEM along with G-20 and will soon be launching the historic Global Biofuels Alliance officially through the platform.

“As the premier sugar organisation in India, ISMA serves as the primary interface between the government and private sugar mills in the country. The association has been at the forefront of India’s national ethanol blending programme, which aims to reduce the country’s dependence on fossil fuels and promote the use of sustainable biofuels. Due to the efforts of the industry, India has been able to reach 10 per cent blending in record time and will be crossing 20 per cent by 2025,” the association said.

“ISMA’s commitment towards sustainability and the sugar industry’s phenomenal contribution to India’s biofuel programme has already become a globally acknowledged success story. With the tremendous potential for sugarcane to produce bio-energy, the industry has become the forerunner in implementing India’s energy transition to a cleaner future. ISMA remains committed to lowering India’s carbon footprint and is already expanding the sugar energy matrix to include ethanol, Compressed Bio Gas (CBG), Green Hydrogen, and Green Methanol,” the sugar mills association said on the future roadmap.

“We are delighted to join hands with the CEM BioFuture Campaign to promote sustainable bio-energy and combat climate change. We recognise the crucial role of the sugarcane industry and its entire ecosystem in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This partnership is a significant step towards fostering innovation, collaboration, and sustainable development for a cleaner and more sustainable energy future,” Sonjoy Mohanty, Director General – ISMA, said.
