In recent years sugar cane industry had been faced with challenges that are mainly manifested in utilization of its by-products such as bagasse and molasses, and the growing concern for the environment that makes the governments to orient its policies and efforts towards the product of fuel that is chemically extracted through fermentation and distillation.

The research paper is directed to serve the economy through feasibility study to establish ethanol fuel plant to improve the profits of the sugar industry and alleviate the environmental problems resulting from the use of fossil fuels.

The study revealed that a capital of $26,201,660 can be invested in plant that produces 200,000 liter/day of ethanol fuel; the annual gross revenue without considering taxes is estimated to be $11,133,000 with payback period of 3.67 years.  The economic indicators are feasible showing that internal rate of return is 22.55%.

first impression when I read your paper, this is can never be substitue fossil fuel ever. In my country (INA) , the government has been released B20 (mean ethanol 20 % mixing with diesel fuel) and it has positive impact for logistic company or common people. But it has negative impact especially for machine under 90's which it has old technology combustion diesel. Whether pandemic covid-19 begin , it can't heard anymore about progression from this program. So I am very interested for this project and hope soon it will reach B100. Nice paper Dr. Osama .
