Vinema Multióleos Vegetais plans 3 new rice ethanol plants in Brazil

April 24, 2012 |

In Brazil, Vinema Multióleos Vegetais plans to build six 300,000 liter per day grain-to-ethanol facilities in Rio Grande do Sul state by 2020 using rice deemed unfit for human consumption as the feedstock for a total consumption of 1.5 million metric tons of waste rice annually. The first facility should come online in 2014. Over production of rice in the country means there’s a 2.5 million ton surplus that must be stored but is of no use.
