Six years after having started the program to incorporate it into the energy matrix, the percentage of ethanol in gasoline has fallen by 4.6% in 2006 to 1.4 in 2011.
According to a study by the OAS, the country has at least one million hectares suitable for cultivation of bio-fuel.
Despite the decrease in the last two years, a rebound is expected towards the end of 2011.
An OAS feasibility study concluded that El Salvador has what it takes for developing an ethanol industry.
