Thai E85 producers want govt to issue law
Thai ethanol producers has urged the government to issue a law to assist concerned parties involved in the business, especially the growers of sugarcane and cassava used to manufacture E85, said  the Thai News Agency (TNA) on Saturday.

Sirivuthi Siamphakdee, chairman of the Thai Ethanol Manufacturers Association (TEMA), said the government had already pushed for the production of E85, a blend of 85 percent of ethanol to 15 percent of gasoline, as a national agenda for use in vehicles but a law is still needed to guarantee and create confidence to concerned parties so that they would strictly follow it, reported TNA.

Sirivuthi said that producers of both E10 and E20 find that they would not be able to make profits because of the high transportation costs on shipping gasoline to ethanol making facilities.

Currently, 45 licenses have been issued to set up ethanol plants but only 11 of them are in operation, while five to six plants plans to begin the production soon, he said.

“If the government’s push for greater consumption of ethanol materialises, demand would definitely rise,” he said.
