BIOFUELS:
Sugar industry forum on ethanol


by News Weekly

News Weekly, May 8, 2004
The Sugar Industry Reform Committee recently conducted a highly successful seminar on ethanol and bio-industry issues in the Burdekin region.

Brazilian Trade Commissioner, Pedro Menezes, suggested that Australian cane farmers could benefit from renewable fuels, as Brazilian growers are able to benefit from ethanol in motor vehicles. Ethanol, he emphasised, did not damage car engines.

He said it would help Brazilian ethanol exports if other countries such as Australia also exported ethanol, since some countries are only interested in buying it from Brazil within a competitive environment.

Bill Elliott, from Dalby Bio Refinery Limited, described the logistics and finances behind establishing ethanol-producing plants.

Dr Ray Kearney, who monitors emissions from Sydney's new road tunnels, described the advantages to human health of reducing the toxic emissions from cars by using ethanol blended fuels.

The Prime Minister was due to release a package for the sugar industry after News Weekly went to press. Comment on the package will appear in the next issue.
