Call for Philippines to boost ethanol blending to 20% in light of higher taxes

December 12, 2018 |

In the Philippines, a governor who is running for the Senate next year is calling for an E20 blending mandate to reduce the rising cost of fuel resulting from increased taxes. She claims that the current blending law wouldn’t need to be amended to facilitate the E20 policy because the domestic industry could only support about a quarter of the total demand. The new taxes will come into effect in January but she says the price of fuel would lower by half the value of the news taxes if an additional 10% ethanol was blended.
