PM Modi says sugarcane by-products reduced dependency on fossil fuels

PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that India is rapidly reducing its dependence on fossil fuels, and in that mission, sugarcane by-products have been of immense help.


He stated the cups, plates, bowls and spoons that were used during the consecration ceremony of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya were made from sugarcane bagasse.


“The cups, plates, bowls and spoons that were used during the consecration ceremony of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya were made from sugarcane bagasse. With us using such things in our day-to-day lives, the utility of sugarcane by-products has also increased," PM Modi added.


He was of the opinion that India is dependent on imports to meet potash needs, but efforts are being made to reduce it with the help of sugarcane bagasse.


"At present, we are dependent on imports to meet our potash needs. However, efforts are being made to reduce that dependence with the help of sugarcane bagasse. The use of press-mud, one of the by-products of sugarcane, is also gradually increasing.


One, it is being used as a bio fertiliser. Secondly, press-mud also plays a crucial role in the production of CBG, or compressed biogas," he said.

Adding more, he said that with us using such things in our day-to-day lives, the utility of sugarcane by-products has also increased.
