The forecasts of the world balance of raw sugar, white sugar, strengthening of ecological norms, as a result - forecasts of consumption of ethanol, which directly affects sugar prices are important topics for us. As well we observantly follow all new technologies which are being implemented within the framework of CO2 emission reduction programs”, said Artem Semenenko.
