Brazilian Senate approves bill allowing direct hydrous ethanol sales

June 20, 2018 |

In Brazil, RTT News reports that the country’s Senate has given the green light for direct hydrous ethanol sales to fuel stations in a 47-2 vote but the House is yet to give its approval. The idea is to cut out middlemen in an effort to lower prices at the pump but the bill only deals with hydrous and not anhydrous ethanol. Anhydrous ethanol is blended with gasoline so needs an intermediary, whereas hydrous can be sold directly without any gasoline.
