Thai Government Pushes to Double Ethanol Use By 2011

1 January 2010

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.
