Nigerian cassava growers look to develop five ethanol plants in Edo State

July 16, 2018 |

In Nigeria, the cassava growers association in Edo State are promoting the implementation of five ethanol pilot plants in three districts of the state in an effort to boost cassava production. The facilities are expected to require 1.25 million in total investment. Some regions suffer from a glut while in other regions processors have a hard time securing the feedstock they need for flour and other products. The hope is increased demand will lead to industrialization of cassava production among farmers.
