Energy Business Department director general Witoon Kulcharoenwirat disclosed that 91-octane gasoline will be no longer available for use by automobiles from 2018.
He added that the Ministry of Energy released a 20-year plan, called the “Alternative Energy Development Plan: AEDP 2015” aiming to boost domestic consumption of gasohol. The goal is to increase demand for ethanol to 11.3 million liters per day by 2036.
If everything goes as planned, the Thai ethanol industry will grow at a rate of 7% per year and demand for cassava and sugarcane (molasses), the main raw materials for ethanol production, will reach 59.5 million tons and 182 million tons per year respectively within a 10 years time to achieve the goals set by AEDP 2015.
