Zimbabwe liberalizes ethanol market as Green Fuel fails to deliver

March 8, 2017 |

In Zimbabwe, the government has at last liberalized ethanol production and sales in the country following Green Fuel’s continued failure to supply the required volumes for the country’s ethanol blending mandates that range between 5% and 15%. Rains have been a constant source of frustration to Green Fuel, keeping the company from harvesting the required sugarcane to feed the ethanol facility. Tongaat Hulett’s Triangle has been supplying ethanol in the meantime while Hippo Valley has sought permission to supply the market but is still waiting for the green light. The government has indicated blending could increase to 20% in the future.
