Brazil Opens Another Biodiesel Plant; Wants to Be Largest Renewable Fuel Supplier

1 May 2005

Brazil_biodiesel_states

Agência Brasil. Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva wants his country to become the largest supplier of renewable fuels in the world market. His administration is working to make biodiesel the second largest energy source in Brazil, following hydroelectric power.

Biodiesel production is a way of making Brazil less dependent on oil, a fuel that may eventually come to an end. This is a vital project for insuring more independence for Brazil, as we may become a large biodiesel exporter.

Lula made the remarks during the inaugural ceremony of the first biodiesel plant of the Northern region of Brazil in the state of Pará. The plant has a projected annual output of 8 million liters (2.1 million gallons US).

Last month, Lula opened the country’s first major biodiesel plant, this one in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais(Earlier post.)

Brazil has enacted a law making B2 mandatory by 2008 and B5 by 2013. 

Earlier this year, Lula stated that Petrobras, the state-owned oil company, will provide the logistic support to the national biodiesel program, the better to ensure distribution within Brazil.
