GRFA calls for policies to kick-start Africa’s biofuel sector

October 28, 2014 |

In Kenya, as the first African Sustainable Transport Forum gets under way in Nairobi, the Global Renewable Fuels Alliance (GRFA) called on forum attendees to adopt biofuels friendly policies and regulations that would kick-start the increased use of sustainable biofuels in Africa’s transport sector.

While biofuel production in Africa has remained relatively low when compared to other jurisdictions, it has grown year on year with ethanol production alone now forecasted to reach 260 million litres in 2014. The domestic use of this ethanol fuel could reduce Africa’s GHG emissions by 325,000 tonnes, equal to removing over 100,000 cars off the road.
