LT Group to begin biofuel production

December 28, 2018 |

In the Philippines, LT Group, Inc. is restarting operations of its Asian Alcohol Corp. distillery unit, which ceased operating eight years ago. Lucio Tan, Sr. said that Asian Alcohol will begin its biofuel production as part of the company’s efforts to develop clean and renewable energy projects, according to Business World Online.

“Next year, Asian Alcohol will begin its biofuel production. Like Absolut Distillers, it will blaze new paths and return to its old glory,” LTG Director Lucio K. Tan, Jr. said in a statement.

“Prior to the suspension of its operations, Asian Alcohol was the country’s second largest distillery,” according to Business World Online. “The company stands on a 10-hectare property with alcohol aging and wastewater treatment facilities capable of converting distillery waste into biogas energy for its power requirements. The facility had a daily rated capacity of 210,000 liters of quality ethyl alcohol back then.”
