Thai Government Pushes to Double Ethanol Use By 2011

Bangkok Post. The Thai government is pushing to double ethanol use by 2011, and increase gasohol consumption by drivers.

Energy Minister Wannarat Channukul said the government had set a goal to increase ethanol content in motor fuels to 2 million litres per day in 2010 from an average of 1.5 million currently, and to lift the figure to 3 million in 2011...Total petrol consumption including gasohol currently averages between 20 million and 22 million litres per day.

Krairit Nilkuha, director-general of the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE) said the department would focus its promotions on E20, a blend of 20% ethanol and 80% petrol, as sales of E20-compatible cars have been rising rapidly. The department will also draw up incentives for carmakers to invest in producing E85-compatible (85% ethanol) vehicles in Thailand.
