Myanmar company looks to produce biodiesel from hombayniya to fuel water buses

October 9, 2017 |

In Myanmar, a local company is getting some Australian agronomy support to grow hombayniya on the banks of the Yangon River as feedstock for biodiesel production. Farmers will grow the plants and supply them to the company for processing. The biodiesel will be used to fuel the water buses that travel along the river. Production could be up and running within about two years. Only Myanmar and India are said to have the appropriate soils to grow hombayniya plants.
