Argentina could boost ethanol blending to 24% in next three years

February 15, 2017 |

In Argentina, the country could double its 12% ethanol blending mandate in the next two or three years to 2 billion liters as it looks to further prop up its sugarcane and corn industries while reducing energy imports. With corn production seen up 23% on the year to 37 million metric tons during 2016/17, sourcing enough feedstock to supply the higher mandate would not be a bottleneck. Currently about 1.2 million tons are used as ethanol feedstock.
