December 15, 2022 |

In Samoa, the local government noted that a new accredited biofuel laboratory at the University of the South Pacific (USP) in Suva will boost Fiji and the region’s energy sector.

The laboratory aims to test at least 38 biofuel properties specifically for ethanol and biodiesel.

USP Institute of Applied Science Acting Director, Isoa Korovulavula said the new lab would generate opportunities in Fiji and the region to use natural resources in the form of biofuel.

“Fuel companies, regulators and stakeholders will attain faster results, meaning timely control of quality in the fuel industry. The establishment of this lab will also ensure the affordability of fuel testing in Fiji and the region. Fuel companies will have access to affordable fuel testing service at their doorstep throughout the year,” Ministry of Infrastructure and Meteorological Services Permanent Secretary, Taitusi Vakadravuyaca, said.
