JV builds 4,000 liter per day cassava ethanol plant in Uganda

March 16, 2015 |

In Uganda, a joint venture between Ugandans, Saudi Arabians and Lebanese investors have invested $1.8 million to build a 4,000 liter per day cassava-based ethanol plant. The facility is expected to boost local cassava prices which have fallen as yields increase thanks to a World Bank-funded research project. Demand has not risen in line with the yield increases. Crop prices should increase to 14 cents per kilo from the current 8 cents as a result of the project.
