Beta vulgaris L. converts sun energy to chemical energy. It's a biofuel crop due to its high sugar content. Sugarbeet is a 5–6-month, 20%-sugar tropical crop. Sugarbeet can withstand varied climates and soils. It can cultivate hundreds of hectares of salinity- and frost-resistant land. First-generation bioethanol employs sugar-based raw materials; second-generation uses lignocellulose. Lignocellulosic biomass is the most plentiful renewable resource. lignocellulosic bioethanol might reach 442 billion liters per year. Bioethanol lowers garbage costs. Cheap trash reduces ethanol costs. Sugarbeet root yields 95-100 liters per ton. This project will examine sugar beet genotypes for bioethanol production. Variety affects ethanol production and quality. This experiment at National Sugar Institute employed 7 sugar beet cultivars to generate alcohol and evaluate bioethanol-dependent sugar beet features. Indian Institute of Sugar Cane Research conducted the field trial. Fermentable sugar, dissolved solids, alcohol percentage, and dissolved sugar are biochemical needs. Lab-made ethanol from sugar beets. Total soluble solids were measured using the brix-Sindle method, pol% with a polarimeter, and total reducing sugar with the Lane-Eynon method. Heat-milled Subhra, LKC-2006, LKC-2010, SZ-35, and PAC-60006 Pulp juice produced 1.5 L with distilled water. IISR Comp 1 has 22.12 Brix, SZ-35 15.83, LS-6, Subhra, LKC-2006, and LKC-2010 19.86, 19.92, 17.96, 20.56, and 19.36 Brix. LS-6, IISR Comp I, Subhra, LKC-2006, LKC-2010, SZ-35, and PAC-60006 contain 15.06, 13.64, 16.34, 12.52, 16.18, 12.37, and 15.21 g/100 ml reducing sugar. LS-6, IISR Comp I, Subhra, LKC-2006, and LKC-2010 have 0, 0.50, 0.23, 0.46, and 0.54 g/100 ml residual sugars. Sugarless wort is in SZ-35 and PAC-60006. LS-6, IISR Comp. L, Subhra, LKC-2006, LKC-2010, SZ-35, and PAC-60006 contain 15.02, 13.14, 16.11, 12.06, 15.64, 12.37, and 15.21 g/100 ml fermentable sugar. Sugar beet bioethanol replaces gasoline. To ferment sugar beet and byproducts into ethanol, comprehend morphological and physiological linkages. This innovative study generates ethanol from fresh sugar beet root. Root quantitative and qualitative features affect ethanol production.
