November 26, 2018 |

In Nigeria, although the agreement between Kebbi State and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. to promote cassava-based ethanol production was signed just last week, already 47,000 ha are being planted with the crop. Some of the crop will be used to produce seed stock for planting the entire 350,000 ha envisioned by the collaboration. The ethanol produced by the project is expected to produce foreign exchange earnings though specifics regarding export expectations were not elaborated by PM News Nigeria.
