China begins construction on ethanol plant and plans 5 more

October 21, 2017 |

In China, China’s State Development & Investment Corporation began construction of its first ethanol plant in the Liaoning province with 300,000 tons of capacity and is planning on building another five ethanol plants in other provinces as well as buying additional facilities. SDIC also plans on processing corn in the northeast China. SDIC is hoping to become China’s top producer of biofuel, especially after the government said last month that it plans on increasing the use of ethanol in gasoline across the country by 2020 in an effort to curb the country’s air pollution. SDIC is aiming to produce 4 million to 5 million tons of ethanol per year in the next three to five years.
