The feasibility study for ethanol production analyzed climate conditions, soil and historic biofuel production.
The results of a study on the country’s biofuel production possibilities will be presented tomorrow.
According to a study by the OAS, the country has at least one million hectares suitable for cultivation of bio-fuel.
The tests to be carried out over six months in 20 vehicles consist of mixing from 1% to 10% ethanol with different gasolines used in the country.
Every year 65 million gallons of ethanol is produced and exported in its entirety because the country lacks standards for blending it into the gasoline used by vehicles.
