Abstract

To ensure the long-term sustainability of bioethanol production in the semi-arid tropics of India this brief explores the option for augmenting bioethanol production using alternative feedstock like sweet sorghum grown in the drylands in addition to use of existing feedstocks. Policy options for the promotion of alternative feedstocks to sustain the bioethanol supply chain for the benefit of all stakeholders involved in the chain are highlighted and discussed
