Maharashtra sugar mills gear up for oxygen production

In order to meet the rising demand for medical oxygen to treat COVID-19 patients, about 70 sugar mills in Maharashtra are gearing up for manufacturing oxygen.

About 25 mills are already in the process to set up oxygen plants and focusing on about 60-70 sugar mills that have financially performed very well. A majority of these mills are in rural areas and the demand for oxygen could be met by sugar mills.

The mills will need to modify distilleries for oxygen manufacturing. Also, the mills will have to take care that commitments of ethanol supply are met. With oxygen manufacturing, the mills are shouldering social responsibility. Also, this could be a business model for the mills.

Or pr mills including private and cooperative mills have placed orders for skid-mounted oxygen manufacturing units. The West Indian Sugar Mill Association (WISMA) has approached manufacturers in China, Taiwan as local manufacturers will require eight-10 months to fulfill the orders.

Each plant has the capacity to refill 90-100 oxygen cylinders daily which will be provided to government and private hospitals at a nominal price. The mills have placed orders for 600 oxygen concentrators.

WISMA has appealed to sugar mills across the country to set up one plant each and procure 25 oxygen concentrators to meet the oxygen requirement in their localities.
