ISMA may transport molasses from UP to Tamil Nadu.

Sugar industry body ISMA is considering transporting excess molasses in the mills of Uttar Pradesh to those in Tamil Nadu, where a drought-hit sugarcane crop is threatening to keep sugar mills and their ancillary units idle and deepen losses. Indian Sugar Mills Association (ISMA) is deliberating on the feasibility of transporting the excess molasses to millers in Tamil Nadu so that it can be processed to make ethanol and other by-products, thereby helping them cut losses.
