Thailand’s new ethanol plant to be finished in November

A new ethanol plant with a 400,000 liter per day capacity will soon rise in Ubon Ratchani, Thailand. Construction of the Thai Ubon Bioethanol project will be finished in November this year; the plant will be able to produce both hydrous and anhydrous materials and can process both cassava and molasses as feedstock.
“We will be able to produce both ethanol grades and can switch raw material feedstock providing a good alternate for our customers,” the company said in a statement. Thailand currently produces three million liters of ethanol daily and supplies the country’s 1.3 million-liter daily domestic demand. (August 20, 2012)
