Bangladesh heads towards E5 with waste feedstocks only

January 3, 2018 |

In Bangladesh, the government has approved an E5 blending mandate in response to local demand for building ethanol production plants. A notice was published in the national gazette December 12 advising interested party to begin developing the plants but only crop waste feedstocks will be allowed under the new policy. Ethanol produced is to be sold directly to Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation for blending and distribution. The local petroleum transportation association said it is concerned ethanol blending will boost fuel prices at the pump.
