Guatemala, OAS to explore biofuels vehicle performance

August 11, 2014 |

In Guatemala, the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Government of Guatemala’s Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) program have signed an MOU for a pilot project to form a Technical Unit on Biofuels. The pilot plan establishes the use of biofuels to assess their environmental and mechanical performance using a sample of 20 to 25 cars that use different percentages of ethanol and petroleum blend fuels.

Minister Archila stressed the commitment of his country to the development of biofuels, and expressed his hope that the agreement would contribute to sustainable development, saying “one of the cornerstones of the country’s energy policy is to seek new paths to energy security, so that in the future we may have a better economy in the use of fuels and can begin to change this paradigm using ethanol.”
