The fuel is targeted for export to the US market. The facility will also produce half a million gallons annually of aviation biofuel. The first 10 million gallon phase of the project is targeted for commissioning the end of 2017. About 3,000 ha of sweet sorghum will be grown to supply feedstock to project.
